Discover how the British Library can help you create and develop your own artistic projects

Are you an early-career artist or student looking for inspiration? Undercurrent Theatre host this chance to meet curators, get up close to some of our collections and discover how you can use the Library to develop your own artistic projects.

The British Library holds a wealth of materials which are increasingly being used as inspiration for artists and creatives alike. Find out more about the Library, how to access the Library’s collections, how to research and develop your own artistic projects using the collections as sites of inspiration and to begin an exchange of ideas.

The afternoon will be hosted by Undercurrent Theatre, the first Associate Theatre Company of the British Library, funded by Arts Council England. In 2016 Undercurrent partnered with the British Library for their sell-out theatre production Calculating Kindness which was inspired by material from the Library's contemporary scientific archives.

The event is free however advance booking is required.
