Daylighting event at Wellcome Collection

Daylighting is a 4 day event at the Wellcome Collection, London, exploring the interconnections of art, activism, performance, politics, health and print, and challenging  existing archives and systems of knowledge.

The programme of events, which takes place 18 – 21st October  includes a live printing workshop,  discussions and collective writing. The production of a collaborative artwork in the form of a newspaper is at the core of the event.

One of the curators is London Met Cass lecturer (and previous library member of staff!)  Clare Qualmann, so it’s sure to be an unmissable series.

Some of the events include:
