It gives me great pleasure to announce the date for this year’s MA Fine Art Symposium at Canterbury. Scheduled for Friday 8th April our symposium is designed for second and third year degree students, UCA alumni and mid-career artists considering studying at MA level in Fine Art, and offers a great introduction to the skills and opportunities our students develop on our MA Fine Art courses here at UCA Canterbury.
At this year’s MA Fine Art Symposium recent graduates will talk about their experiences of the course and how the skills they acquired have helped their professional development since graduating. Speakers will discuss their success in a range of contexts: gaining employment, securing funding, international awards, commissions, exhibitions and residencies; working with galleries and museums and going on to further study at PhD level. They will describe their drive to promote their own career paths and the skills they gained from the course, which became invaluable tools for their professional development.
As well as listening to the stories of our alumni, you will also have the opportunity to:
- Tour the campus and the MA studios
- Have lunch with our current students and recent graduates
- Talk to our staff about the courses and how to apply.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the day and we will also be offering free transport to UCA Canterbury for current BA students travelling from our other UCA campuses at Epsom, Farnham and Rochester.
