Join me as I reveal the extraordinary Afro-European narratives within the V&A’s Europe 1600 – 1815 Galleries!

My specially researched tour will give an overview of the African presence in 17th and 18th Century Europe as represented in a number of high quality artistic works. From blackamoors to rebel leaders - visitors will look at the experiences and achievements of individuals of African descent in European history at a time when the African body would become symbolic of degradation.

Comments from previous attendees;

The tour was absolutely superb. I had no idea of the history of some of the objects here and Nadia made them come to life in a way that was inspiring. 

Tour was excellent. Tour guide spoke knowledgeably and eloquently conveying fascinating information about the black presence in Europe.

Excellent – informative, thought provoking. Opened my eyes to the V&A Collection.

All tours are free and drop-in. There is no booking procedure. Meet at the MEETING POINT in the Grand Entrance of the V&A Museum (first come first served), where I will come to collect you.
