Other highlights include board game sessions, a dance piece about migration performed by over 250 young people, storytelling and poetry workshops and the chance to visit Windrush: Songs in a Strange Land, a free exhibition marking 70 years since the Empire Windrush arrived at Tilbury Docks, in Essex, carrying hundreds of Caribbean migrants to Britain.
The event will run between 12-4 pm; more information can be found on the British Library website.

You are invited to the exhibition of the Interaction Research Studio project ProbeTools!
ProbeTools are unconventional cameras and audio devices for user research. They’re easy to make, customise and use, and open-sourced so that designers and researchers can employ them in their own studies. ProbeTools are a design-led approach to engaging with settings aimed at producing inspiration rather than information. They involve presenting people with open-ended, even absurd tasks in the hope that their responses will provide fragmentary illumination of their lives, thoughts, hopes and fears. The exhibition will be held in the Lobby of Ace Hotel London and is free entry. RSVP to j.molinera[@]gold.ac.uk.
