The first 20 people to arrive at WMG Late: Agitate will receive a Craftivist Collective kit! 

WMG Lates, our bimonthly after-hours events curated with Vine Collective, are a chance to experience the Gallery in a relaxed adult atmosphere.

This month, inspired by Bob and Roberta Smith’s exhibition Art Is Your Human Right, we explore the art of protest through punk, poetry, craft and film.
