Coffee and cakes are generously provided by the East End Women’s Institute. For more information on all of the events, please click here. This event is organised in conjunction with Without Walls, a fortnight of collaborative events, curated by members of Chisenhale Art Place.

A new short film by filmmaker Ayo Akingbade, who participated in Chisenhale Gallery's Stop Play Record programme 2015-16, is featured on First Acts, a platform led and supported by Arts Council England and Channel 4 that presents the most exciting new short films by young people aged 16-24 years. In Akingbade's film, titled Tower XYZ, characters wander through London’s concrete jungle as the narrator reflects on the current state of the city and her imagined future.
