12.30-3.30pm: The Spanish Civil War (1936-39) was sparked by a military coup led by General Franco against Spain’s elected government. In Britain, the ‘Aid Spain’ movement started to raise funds for food and medical supplies and to help refugees. This exhibition, in partnership with the Marx Memorial Library, showcases six visually stunning campaign banners for ‘Aid Spain’. To complement their Banners for Spain exhibition – join Islington Museum’s adult art class this afternoon and explore and respond to the banners.
5.30-7.30pm at Platform Youth Hub: Candoco Dance Company invites young people to join them for a free, weekly, creative dance project, suitable for disabled and non-disabled young people. No dance experience is required, just your enthusiasm! Dancing Letters is bringing together the rich worlds of contemporary dance and letter reading and writing to give participants the opportunity to experience different forms of expression, both written and physical. Participants will take inspiration from letters old and new and work together for eight weeks to create a unique dance performance which will be performed on 30 June as part of the Word Festival finale.
