suartsculture:

We are trying to create an autonomous student committee that would represent the interests and defend the rights of disabled students. The committee would mainly have two functions:

Firstly, it would be a safe space for students to talk about how things can improve and put forward suggestions to the university and ask the university to implement proposed changes.

Secondly, the university will then have a vocal representative body of students to go to, before developing and putting in place policies which would affect those students.

This committee can play an important and vital role within the university’s structures and a huge proportion of our students (roughly 17%: 3000 students!) who identify as disabled, can greatly benefit from it. The sessions will be college specific at the following dates, times and addresses:

 

Chelsea, Camberwell and Wimbledon: Tuesday, October 14th, 5-7PM, Chelsea A208

CSM: Thursday, October 16th, 5-7PM, Granary Square Building A002

LCF: Monday October 20th, 5-7PM, High Holborn 303

LCC: Thursday October 23rd, 5-7PM, LCC T410

 

Please RSVP to me as soon as possible so I can organise enough snacks. Everyone who considers themselves to be disabled or accesses the university’s disability and dyslexia support and/or counselling services are welcome. Also if you cannot make it to your college specific session or cannot make any of the dates but are interested in the debate, please get in touch so we can include your thoughts and concerns in the agenda. My email is culture-diversity@su.arts.ac.uk

 

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Creative Ambassador Applications Close October 5th

SUARTS Creative Ambassador programme is an opportunity for current University of the Arts London students to gain skills and experience with Made in the Arts London and SUARTS Creative Opportunities. This programme was developed as an opportunity for students who do not have work to showcase or sell via MiAL and SUARTS to get involved in a different way.

We welcome students from all UAL courses and disciplines, and endeavor to tailor the experience of being a Creative Ambassador to each individual depending on specific areas of interest.

Creative Ambassadors learn about promoting and selling artwork as well as gaining experience in working within an arts organisation and as part of a creative team. You will have access to professional development opportunities, the chance to network and meet new people, and to build essential skills needed for future roles within the arts. 

Check out Made in Arts London for more information and to apply online.

What to expect in your first few weeks

The beginning is looming, but don’t let nerves spoil your excitement.  Whilst every experience is different, here’s one account of a first day studying at MA level at LCC.

image

The first weeks are always nerve wracking. For me, I’d never studied at this level before, and it was my first proper experience of London. But nerves are good, nerves are just another form of excitement. 

First I had to get the official enrolment out of the way. Which went from being painless, to being a pain, to being painless again. I had some issues with the payments being split in different ways which made it complicated to explain. After a few tries, I had my student card in hand and was on my way home again.

World’s Largest Film Festival Coming to UAL!

image

Campus MovieFest (CMF), the world’s largest student film festival, is coming to University of the Arts London this autumn!

What’s CMF? 

CMF, a premier outlet for the next generation of filmmakers, began in 2001 when four students at Emory University provided fellow students with everything they needed — including camcorders and Apple laptops — to make movies in one week. Since then, more than 500,000 students at colleges and universities globally have received all the necessary technology and training to tell their stories on the big screen through film. CMF is free to students thanks to corporate partners and schools. You can find more information online

Let us tell you a bit more about this amazing competition…
