  • What and who is an undergraduate fine art education for?
  • How are students prepared for life beyond art school? What is the role of local partnerships?
  • How are attitudes and approaches shaped by factors such as location, intake, and the cultural/political climate?

At this event undergraduate fine art staff from across Scotland and the rest of the UK will come together with students, graduates, academics, and industry professionals to share practice and address these questions. We invite a sector-wide audience to attend the event. Speakers will be announced soon.

This event is organised by Glasgow School of Art in collaboration with Q-Art. It is hosted by Glasgow School of Art as part of its engagement in the Quality Enhancement Theme Transitions Out .

Q-Art has received support from Glasgow School of Art, Swansea College of Art, a-n and Kingston University to produce a book on the topic. The book will be launched at this event.

Standard entry £10.  Includes lunch & 10% off Q-Art's new book
