2015: Year In Review
It's been another remarkable year for Central Saint Martins, with a broad range of events, awards, and other accomplishments to report. Anchored at the heart of one Europe's most dynamic new urban centres, Central Saint Martins is increasingly important to London's cultural life. It is easy to get overwhelmed on an almost daily basis by the sheer amount of activity that CSM hosts, so putting together highlights of the past year has been a difficult task. What is really striking is how many of these are making a significant public impact, indicative of our general desire to open up CSM to as broad an audience as possible.
