Women transforming South Kensington

In celebration of International Women’s Day, we’ll be exploring how we can design new spaces across South Kensington’s cultural district that celebrate sustainability, accessibility and innovation in the arts and sciences.

From starting a new urban nature movement at the Natural History Museum to a £40 million state of the art redevelopment of the Royal College of Music, join an all-female panel to discuss how women are re-shaping Albertopolis.

We’ll be joined by Emily Candler, Executive Director at Exhibition Road Cultural Group and Discover South Kensington, Aida Berhamovic, Director of Estates at Royal College of Music, Natalie Tacq, Senior Project and Programme Manager at Natural History Museum, and Sara Kassam, Sustainability Lead at the V&A.

More events

We were previously taught that art is a paintbrush and paper but today has shown us that art is a huge world. City Lions is a good thing to do as it provides really good opportunities to visit places like this (Somerset House).
