The Young Artists Festival Project is an arts, media, film, music and culture festival for the whole community, showcasing young artists from Swale and Medway. To date, over 60 young people have volunteered and have displayed over 125 pieces of art. One of the things that has drawn me across the Atlantic is Plymouth College of Art’s commitment to material practice and dedicated physical spaces to make, which internationally are becoming a rarity. The studio spaces and resources at the college offer possibilities for new hybrids between analogue and digital making techniques, for using digital and physical expertise to solve problems creatively. Go beyond the studio and interrogate the social, aesthetic and practical dimensions of contemporary practice with staff and students from the interdisciplinary School of Arts + Media.

You’ll concentrate on a major area of study while maintaining a breadth of learning spanning the arts, humanities and social sciences. At Sheppey Matters we try combining a range of learning, educational opportunities and qualifications in the arts and broadcasting with our Healthy HeArts approach with funding from Colyer Fergusson. Below is a quick overview of just two of our programmes; Blank Canvas which is a previous project and the YAF project which is on-going.

You’ll receive a minimum of 10 hours of one-on-one time with your supervisor, to agree the scope and direction of your capstone project. You’ll explore topics from a wide range of perspectives, learn to understand the relationships between subjects and start to connect themes and topics across modules. A student who wishes to attend an “ineligible” school, which includes any school in the USA, will forfeit all funding from that semester going forward and all current loans will become due with immediate effect.
