Although we are closed at present we want to continue to deliver our mission to inspire and enrich our communities with art, architecture and design in whatever way we can.
We know that many of you are looking for ways to get creative and keep learning now that life has changed for all of us.
Every week we will share a selection of our favourite activities and links, chosen by the Team at Pitzhanger to keep you inspired and entertained during this unprecedented time.
This Week’s Picks
Read ‘How to be Autistic’ with @autisminmuseums
It’s World Autism Awareness Week this week and Autism in Museums is reading How to be Autistic by Charlotte Amelia Poe. There will be an online discussion on Wednesday 7-8pm on Twitter and Instagram which you can join in if you want to know more.
Rediscover the joy of colouring in #ColorOurCollections
Need a soothing but engaging activity while you practice social distancing? Lots of museums are offering free downloadable colouring books based on their collections including the Getty Museum and the Folger Shakespeare Library. Hours of fun!
Challenge yourself with the #RAdailydoodle
Whilst the doors to the Royal Academy of Arts are firmly closed the RA remains ‘virtually’ open. The daily doodle challenge is a fantastic way to keep your brain active and it never fails to make us laugh!
Follow @JacRiding on twitter for your #DailyHogarth
Looking forward to Pitzhanger’s upcoming exhibition Hogarth: London Voices, London Lives? Us too. That’s why we love Jacqueline Riding’s new #DailyHogarth hashtag for locked – down -urbanites. Learn more about your favourite paintings and discover more. Can’t wait for that new Hogarth biography!
Follow @london_artist1 for some IG inspiration

Dream about beautiful rooms to WFH in with Tatler
Escape from your new day to day, inside the same four walls and read Tatler’s picks of inspirational rooms which they’d love to ‘work from home’ in. Thrilled to see Pitzhanger’s Upper Drawing Room get a mention. Why not write your own list of beautiful rooms and share them with us?
