Join curators Jess Twyman and Adhithi Ravikumar for at tour of William Blake’s work on display in ‘Prophet Against Empire’ exhibition.

Together we will expand on William Blake’s way of thinking and the roots of his resistance to science, ‘progress’ and the Age of Reason. In doing so, we will explore the mythological world of the imagination that he created to help us rekindle our connection with the world around us.

The works on show are part of the University of Essex’s collection of facsimiles of William Blakes handmade books and prints.

Admission free – all welcome
