Sunday 9th November, 3:30, in the Old Kitchens.

Join us for an afternoon with Roopa Farooki and Julia Stephenson to discuss the ramifications of the lack of diversity both on our screens and in our books, and their personal experiences of working within these industries.

You must pay for Matriculation Photos this weekend or else orders will not go through and you will not receive your photos.
