Make Yourself at HOME with Lekan Lawal

Make Yourself at HOME is a place to meet other artists of colour in an informal setting. Whatever art form you’re working in, whether you’re starting out or an old hand, this space is for you!

On 22 March at 5pm we are delighted to welcome Lekan Lawal as a guest speaker.

As the newly appointed Creative Associate Director at HOME, Lekan joins us to talk about how his career began, tell us about the work he makes and explore Routes into Directing and Making. There will also be time for an informal Q&A.
