Final day and still a lot to pack in…
• Hannah Clements from Student Employability and Enterprise presented about funding options for students
• an experimental group tutorial/peer assessment/self reflection exercise
• visit to the Whitechapel Gallery

MA Fine Art Digital is unique in having students based both in London and online living anywhere in the world.
After 10 years of hugely successful delivery in this unusual way we are now enhancing the model with a ‘Low Residency’ 2 week intensive time in London for all students to attend if they choose.
A ‘Low Residency’ masters in fine art has a long and successful tradition in North America but our offer is a first for the UK.
With a simple and highly effective way of building a ‘community of practice’ for both London and online based students, adding the Low Residency element provides an exciting and challenging strand.
We will blog about the various activities over the next 10 days which will include discussions, tutorials, an interim exhibition, lectures, hacking workshops and a 2 day collaborative making project.
As we start here is some great advice from a recent talk by curator Lucy Day:
