Take part in the AKC: The original award of King’s

AKC Thumb v2 22

There is still time for new King’s students to enrol on this year’s AKC programme!

The AKC (Associateship of King’s College) is the original award of King's, dating back to its foundation in 1829 and reflecting its first motto: sancte et sapienter, "holiness and wisdom".

This term’s lecture series goes inside London to explore The Story of a City in Nine Artworks. Focusing on London’s sacred spaces and the artworks that shape them, lecturers ask how art enlarges experience, creates communities, and opens our eyes to new dimensions of life in the heart of the busy city that connects everyone at King’s.

Curators, artists, community leaders and academics share their expertise to lead a virtual tour through some of London’s most interesting sacred spaces.

Upcoming AKC lectures for 2023

Climate Change: What can we do?

The AKC will be returning in January 2023 with a new lecture series: Climate Change: What can we do?

In the 2020s we all know about climate change but, what should we do about it? How can we channel our fear and worry into positive change? This AKC series considers ethical and political responses to climate change from academic experts working in different disciplines – philosophy, geography, meteorology, theology, economics – and also from artists and activists who argue for a radical disruption of familiar paradigms.

Lectures start on Monday 16 January and take place at 12 noon in S-2.18 (Strand Campus).

There's no need to register, just turn up or email to participate online.
