Best of British: an art school debate
Expect a heated and informative debate tonight, as a panel of professionals discusses the role of enterprise culture in art schools.
20.06.12 - Does entrepreneurship have a role in art education? How should art schools introduce ideas of enterprise into studies? And, with increased student tuition fees in England from September 2012, what changes are needed to ensure the continued viability and relevance of art schools?
Tonight (20 June 2012) The Great British Art School Debate: A Pathway to Enterprise, part of Camberwell Arts Festival 2012, brings together four art professionals, mediated by Dean of Camberwell College of Arts Natalie Brett, to explore this very topic.
The panel consists of Sarah Rowles (director, Q-Art London), Tim Balaam (designer and co-founder, Hyperkit), Will Jarvis (painter and co-founder, The Sunday Painter) and Zoe Campbell (designer and founder, Stumped Studio).
a-n will be there, too, with artist and AIR council member Rosalind Davis – who co-runs the DIY Educate programme – tweeting for @an_magazine from 7-9pm. And if you’d like a little more detail than it’s possible to provide in 140 characters, Rosalind will be posting a news report after the event.
