Teachers’ Assembly: Drawing Race 

Habiba Nabisubi


3:45-5pm, Community Studio

We invite teachers and school staff to come and join artist-illustrator Habiba Nabisubi for a workshop to explore race representation through drawing on Thursday 29th February, 3.45-5pm.


Habiba Nabisubi’s work focuses on stories, identity and hair. She has recently published illustrations in Our Rights! Stories and Poems about Children’s Rights, edited by Jake Hope.

This CPD session will encourage us to think critically about how drawing techniques, materials, tones and references provided in the classroom can better reflect the diversity of our communities. This important shift will allow all children to feel seen and have the confidence to draw themselves and each other.

The session will include a visit to our current exhibition Time of Our Lives, hands-on activities, discussion and refreshments!

Please sign up below. We look forward to seeing you!

*Please note, this event is free but spaces are limited so do notify us of any cancellations so we can reallocate your ticket.
