This independence allows it to offer a free three-year postgraduate programme with bursary support to facilitate the production of new work. With a maximum of 17 students per year group it is are able to tailor its' programme to the specific needs of each student, offering time and space to reflect and make. Discussion and debate is fuelled by a variety of lectures, artist talks, group critiques and tutorials given by leading contemporary artists, Royal Academicians, critics, writers and theorists.
Kihnu, an Estonian island in the Gulf of Riga, situated an hour’s ferry ride away from the coast, has thanks to its women retained a culture that has cemented its position as part of UNESCO’s list of intangible cultural heritage since 2003. This unique European and Baltic culture is thus now officially acknowledged and protected. Whereas Kihnu’s men – for the most part sailors and fishermen – brought innovation and novelty to the island, the women, that we could qualify as ‘cultural guardians’, where more conservative and tended to the affairs of the island.
VEO Europa is an Erasmus+ funded project using an innovative mobile app for video enhanced observation to support teacher training and continuing professional development
This exhibition showcases the work of 18 graduates of 2016 from the Royal College of Art’s MA Print programme in the school of Fine Art who worked closely alongside each other for two years before dispersing around the world to continue their work as artists. The issue of the distribution of images at a time when images are increasingly shared on digital platforms is central to our course. Students were invited to post a paper based image or upload a digital file to be shown on screen copy which uses the idea of interconnection and gathering as a starting point.
One-day event, organised by the University of Roehampton with the support of the European Commission Representation in the UK, which will explore how translation is used as a creative and artistic tool in order to cope with situations of crisis.
It will bring together: i) artists, filmmakers and journalists who have performed or used translation as a creative practice in their work; ii) professional and/or non-professional translators whose work relates to contexts of crisis; iii) academics who are studying creative uses of translation in socially/politically engaged contexts.
In the autumn of 2016 translators active in the UK were asked their opinion on a wide range of issues affecting the profession in a survey conducted by the European Commission Representation in the UK, the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL) and the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI). Nearly 600 individuals responded. At this event we will launch a report outlining the full results of the survey and discuss the findings with a panel of senior practitioners from across the spectrum of translation activity in the UK, with time for comments and questions from the audience.
