The final event at the end of a week-long celebration of under-represented creative producers based in south London will take place this Sunday.

The free event is founded by Nicholas Okwulu of Pempeople, and will feature talks from Tracey Francis, photographer John Yabrifa discussing mental health and imagery, and events which include one-minute portrait drawing sessions and working with typography alongside graphic designers to create DIY poster designs and a Doodle Talks session.

Lucie Russell, of Drawing People Together w describes her Doodle Talks project as a “community drawing group that creates free and cheap events…that aim to quite literally draw people together.

The concept of Doodle Talks is to draw out creative inspiration; the speakers will offer new insight into their creative practices and the audience will participate through creating their own doodles or drawings inspired by this experience.”

Miho Aishima is a co-founder of the Rye Here Rye Now Southwark Untold event alongside Kat Garner and says, “Getting creative people together and helping people to connect is something I feel is important for creatives. We are about building a community with meaningful connections. We aim to be inclusive and welcome not just to designers, but illustrators, photographers, filmmakers, musicians, writers and more, across all walks of life and backgrounds. We feel that being multi-disciplinary can lead to more collaborations across various genres. Through our monthly meet-ups, we can help each other create great projects and support each other through our creative journeys."

The event takes place this Sunday 1 July at 1pm at Tate Exchange.
