Mental Fight Club is inviting people to get involved in its new At The Table Project exploring different drawing techniques.

This project will consist of four hour long participatory workshops with the acclaimed artist Liz Atkin, who’s lived experience plays a pivotal role in her artistic process. To ensure that this opportunity is accessible to everyone, The Dragon Café will provide free art materials for all participants of the sessions.
