As the seasons shift, here at Regent’s Place we’re battling gloomy commutes and darker evenings by embracing London’s autumnal skies with a new day time routine. Wrapped up in an extra layer to get out and about over lunch, our Art Curator, Rosie Glenn leads the way to uncover inclusive and sustainable themed artwork on display throughout the nearby Knowledge Quarter and beyond. Why not book a slot in your calendar now to ensure you boost your energy and wellbeing during daylight hours this week with a stroll to uncover thought-provoking creativity for yourself?

This Vexed Question : Royal College of Physicians

Celebrating significant milestones within London society and throughout the country as a whole, three particular exhibitions nearby are exploring the roles of women and also the impact of migration. Over in Bloomsbury until 15 December, Senate House Library is presenting Rights for Women : London Pioneers in their own words, a season exploring over 50 of London’s female pioneers who broke barriers to drive change and establish rights for women. Also on the theme of female roles, This Vexed Question : 500 years of Women in Medicine, is on show at the Royal College of Physicians; located on the eastern edge of Regent’s Park, this Knowledge Quarter institution is perfectly located for a brisk stroll.

Alternatively, head north of Regent’s Place into Camden to uncover an exhibition which celebrates the 80th anniversary of the Kindertransport; staged by The Jewish Museum to 10 February 2019, Remembering the Kindertransport : 80 Years On, this display captures the stories of six of the Kinder (child refugees) in their own words. Alongside the recorded testimonies from those now in their 80s and 90s, objects brought by them to London as children from their homeland are also on view.

Featuring artwork by significant contemporary artists such as Andreas Gursky and Rachel Whiteread, this major exhibition explores the impact buildings have on our physical and mental health. On show until March 2019, Living with Buildings is accompanied by a series of gallery talks and events.
