Get your term off to a Flying Start at the Victoria & Albert Museum!
As part of Freshers’ Week, on Friday 28th September, we’ve arranged for UAL students to run workshops and activities at the V&A’s monthly Friday Late event. This month, the theme is ‘Flying High’ so whether you’re a fresher or a PhD student, get your term off to a flying start by coming to support your fellow students and generally enjoying the fun on offer during the evening.
It’s free and runs from 18:30 – 21:30.
Looking forward to seeing you there for a UAL take over!
Also, if you’d like to be a little more involved than just coming along, we’re looking for some student volunteers to help us on the night. It’ll be a great opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how Friday Lates are run, meet like-minded practitioners and gain some great hands-on experience.
We are looking in particular for students keen on photography, and also any budding actors/actresses, but anyone is welcome to apply for the opportunity.
If you are interested, please get in touch with Laura on email@example.com asap
Last chance to enter your submission for the Museum of London Late
A few weeks ago we posted the amazing opportunity we’ve got lined up for you to work with the Museum of London. The deadline to submit your project proposals is the 20th September, so hurry up if you want to be involved!
All information and details of how to apply are below, in case you missed it first time around. Good luck!
CALL FOR ENTRY – Museum of London Londinium Late.
The Students Union has teamed up with the Museum of London to create an amazing opportunity for you to be part of the Museum’s Late Night event on Friday 30 November 2012.
On June 22, the Museum of London opened a gallery reinvented by young people for the very first time. ‘Our Londinium 2012’ is the largest update to the Museum’s Roman gallery since it opened in 1994, drawing parallels between Roman London and the city today.
The gallery features installations that range from multimedia displays to rarely seen Roman artefacts. Modern objects have been selected by young participants to demonstrate the similarities and differences between Roman Londinium and London today. These include a commissioned set of nails designed by WAH Nails Dalston to show how Londoners express identity through fashion and personal appearance, ‘V for Vendetta’/ Anonymous masks favoured by protesters in the Occupy movement, and protest placards from last years ‘March for the Alternative’ to examine issues of power and authority in London past and present.
To celebrate the unique collaboration between the Museum and over one hundred and fifty young Londoners, the Museum of London wants to stage a Late Night Friday event on Friday 30 November. In the spirit of the exhibition, this event is to be curated in collaboration with Junction, the Museum of London’s youth panel and UAL students.
The aim of the event is to encourage visitors to look, listen & create through separate projects, curated and manned by different student groups, dotted around the Museum’s floors. Projects could include: workshops, performances, interactive activities, radio shows, fashion shows, film-screenings, tours, installations, talks.
These projects should relate to:
- The staging of a meeting point between contemporary vs. ancient London as explored in ‘Our Londinium 2012’.
- Themes explored in the exhibition such as Power, Language, Belief, Style & Beauty, Industry, Trade & Transport, Home life & Fun.
- The Late coincides with the Roman winter solstice festival ‘Saturnalia’ which often involved the practice of societal role reversal i.e. slaves became the masters of the household and vice versa.
Entry for project proposals is now open! To apply, follow the instructions below:
1. Email your interest or any general enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
2. We will reply with instructions on what your proposal should include and themes that you need to consider
3. Submit your proposal to email@example.com by Sept 20th 2012
