Events and Work Experience

Haringey Unchained has been invited all over London by members of the Art and Culture sectors. We’ve also had an incredible range of professional visitors come to our college and engage with our work. Following are some of the bigger events and visits we’ve had over the years, which we think represent the overall depth and breadth of the opportunities we’ve been able to create through our enrichment. But please note that this is not an exhaustive list.
