As part of London College of Communication’s ongoing support to our cultural neighbours, we’re featuring a weekly round-up of some of the online activities and content provided by the fantastic museums, galleries and cultural venues in our local area.
From Instagram drawing clubs to virtual exhibitions, artist profiles, video demonstrations, film screenings, performances and more, here’s our guide to what you can get involved in with our Southwark and Lambeth friends and partners – all from the comfort of your own home.
Week starting: 7 September 2020
Elephant Park Drawing Club: Trees with Art in the Park
Tuesday 8 September, 11am-12pm
“Elephant Park is promoting a series of free online creative activities during spring and summer. This free workshop for adults is hosted by Art In The Park.
“In this session we will be exploring drawing details and forms of trees based on images taken in Elephant Park, which is a small green oasis which is open to the public in the built up environment of Elephant and Castle in central London.”
Book your place for Elephant Park Drawing Club: Trees.
Navigating Digital Identities with The Bell House
Tuesday 8 September, 5-6pm
“We spend so much time involved in digital communication with each other and the world that we may not take much time to explore what our digital presence means for us as individuals.
“Suitable for young people, this will be an hour-long conversation discussing the creation of digital identities, their influence on ourselves and their sustainability.”
Register for Navigating Digital Identities.
Climate Crisis Workshop Booklets with F.A.T Studio & Southwark Council
“These 6 workshop booklets were commissioned by Southwark Council as part of a bigger project which aimed to engage young people in conversations around the climate crisis and the impact it's having in our borough.
“They are highly illustrative and are designed to present facts from Southwark's Annual Public Health Report, provide inspiration for action and stimulate open conversation.”

Inclusive Dance with Walworth Living Room
“We try new things every week, from making up dances together to having fun practising our singing! You don’t need to have too much room to move, enough space to reach your arms out to the side is enough!
“We meet over Zoom, a video calling app that's very easy to use. To access this you will need a computer/tablet or mobile phone with a webcam and sound. Once signed up you will receive an email with instructions of how to use Zoom.”

Online Get Together discussing Theatres with Voluntary Arts
Wednesday 9 September 9.30-10.30am
“In March, Voluntary Arts launched #CreativeNetwork - a series of online get-togethers open to anyone involved in arts, culture and creativity in order to connect and collaborate in unusual times. Facilitating these conversations has enabled people from across the UK and Ireland to talk with others, develop ideas and projects, and find sustainable ways forward in changing circumstances.
