Take an imaginative tour of the Strand led by Strandlines Cabinet of Artists!
The tour will bring London’s busy thoroughfare, the Strand, to the Anatomy Museum at King’s College London. Not only transforming the museum space, but also reimagining the Strand, the artists will introduce you to points of interest and inspiration. Performances, songs, poetry and visual displays will enrich understandings of the rich, dynamic and intimate histories of this famous street.
The Cabinet of Artists is a group of creative practitioners associated with Strandlines: an initiative that explores past and present lives on the Strand. Strandlines is run by the Centre for Life-Writing Research at King’s College London.
