If the Easter holidays are making you really crave learning, then fear not.
Why not check out a public talk or workshop to get you back into the swing of it, or learn about something new?
LSE have a public lecture War: what is it good for? on Thursday the 10th (today!) It’s a good question.
If that doesn’t float your boat, try out Bang! Said The Gun - a poetry night ‘for people who hate poetry’ in Borough. OK so it’s not a lecture, but people will be talking and you might or might not like it.
On Friday there is a creative writing workshop at the London Metropolitan Archives. It’s £10, but learning how to write in another style could challenge the way you approach essays - or hell, you might just enjoy it.
Impact Hub Brixton have a whole host of talks and workshops on Friday, including ‘what does collaboration mean to you?’, tips on starting a business, and morning yoga.
This Saturday there will be a discussion about UAL student Clayton Pettet’s controversial and much talked of performance Art School Stole My Virginity at the Fringe! Film Fest. This 'queer film & arts' festival runs from Friday 11th to Monday 14th April and has a whole host of other events going on.
The following week, why not try ‘Skin Skinning' - a taxidermy masterclass to undertake in the buff? Great place to meet other naked people.
Or if you fancy keeping your clothes on while you can before global warming ruins everything, Gresham College have a talk on ‘a Million Years of Sea Level Change.’
Cass Art have a ‘Draw Faces in 15 Minutes’ class, which is £15 but might be a good creative kickstart if your Easter break hasn’t been what you hoped.
And the ICA will have a free introduction to three recent frieze videos.
