Somewhere in Between (–
In this exhibition we have 4 artists, Martina Amati, Maria McKinney, Daria Martin and John Walter, who each collaborated with scientists to examine ideas that are important to human life – ideas around our senses, our food sources, our sexual health and the limitations of our bodies.
In this exhibition you will see:

London Pride (Parade, July 7th 2018)
Thousands of people of all genders, race and faith come together every year for Pride in London. Pride in London celebrates the city’s LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans +) community. Pride parade and free Trafalgar Square performances will take place on the 7th of July 2018. Personally I would recommend it to everyone as it is basically a celebration of love. One of the best parties I have ever been to in the “Big Smoke”. Here are all the details of the event: https://prideinlondon.org/
Notting Hill Carnival (26-27 August, 2018)
The Notting Hill Carnival usually takes place on the bank holiday weekend at the end of August. This year it will be on the 26th and 27th of August. More details on the parade, which takes place on both days, will be announced closer to the date. This is one of the biggest carnivals and street parties in Europe (2 million people, 2017). This event is a celebration of London’s Caribbean communities, traditions and culture. The Carnival spreads throughout W10 in West London and over the areas of Notting Hill, Ladbroke Grove and Wesbourne Park.

A new exhibition at the Design Museum, Hope to Nope: Graphics and Politics 2008-18, shows how everything from memes to hashtags have turned the political landscape upside down. In this exhibition you get to explore more than 160 objects and installations. “Hope to Nope” examines the political graphic design of the last 10 years, from traditional posters and banners to the rise of digital media and social networks that have changed the nature of protest.
