Alumni of Colour Association

UAL Alumni of Colour

The UAL Alumni of Colour Association is a supportive community to help increase the visibility and representation of people of colour in the creative industries.

They create opportunities to share ideas, knowledge, skills, stories, and networks to increase confidence and spark empowerment.

How can I get involved?

To join the association and keep up to date with news, opportunities and invites to our events, contact aoca@arts.ac.uk

We'd also love to hear from you if:

  • you have any event ideas
  • want to be a guest speaker
  • have a venue space to offer
  • you want to help us grow our network

The Committee

All committee members are alumni volunteers, led by a president, who work on ways to unite and support their community by planning events, communications, and creative projects.
