The Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Graduate School supports staff and students across the three colleges to develop their research careers and create research with cultural and social value.
This term, the Graduate School would like to invite staff at the three colleges to propose events to feature in the public programme for 2016-17. This programme aims to celebrate the research activity taking place at Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon.
Over the past two years, this programme has seen events as varied as the Shadow without Object and Projection/Expulsion symposia and talks from international visitors such as curator, writer, critic and academic Robert Storr and artist Jim Dine. Outside the college walls, LATEWI took place over two days in venues across Peckham, using panel discussions, an exhibition, a film screening and workshops to explore the unmapped relationship between the council estate, the community and the arts; on an interactive walking tour of Wimbledon’s unexamined places, Wilding the Edges, asked participants to consider how we engage with landscape as culture – specifically where ‘wild’ and ‘cultivated’ environments overlap.
For next year’s programme, the Graduate School is looking for events that have some elements that are internationally excellent as demonstrated in the quality of the research presented at the event, its venue, partnerships, its internal or external speakers and which enhance the student experience. The programme will be open to an audience that includes staff, students at all levels and the public and will be publicised through the What’s On and various digital channels.
In addition to funding, successful applicants will receive support with the publicity, marketing and practical aspects of the organisation and delivery of their event from the Graduate School team.
So if you have a proposal for an exhibition, talk, symposium or other events and activities which can integrate Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon’s research and practice strengths within its taught courses and position the Graduate School within key debates relevant to art and design, please submit your application form by Friday 12 February 2016.
This invitation is open to all permanent Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon full-time and fractional staff (with at least 0.2fte).
The deadline for submissions is Friday 12 February 2016 and awards will be announced in the week beginning 21 March 2016.
