"I chose to come to Goldsmiths as it is one of the few institutions in the world that offers an MA program dedicated to the intersection of art and politics, and beyond this, one that believes such interdisciplinary dialogue can offer solutions to real world problems. I felt that this collaborative environment was the perfect place to expand my research and discover meaningful ways to examine artistic experiences that provide action against political injustices.
My interest in the field of art and politics emerged during my undergraduate degree in Art History where I explored the politics of Australian art and its connection with international experiences. I continued to develop this interest through my work in Education and Public Programs at the University of Queensland Art Museum and the Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art, where I largely curated programs that focused on arts relationship with politics and society.
I am really enjoying the MA Art & Politics! It combines complex theory with practical project work, and students are encouraged to expand their interests and practices in a supportive, collaborative environment. Beyond the course, there is always something to do at Goldsmiths. From attending a lecture, to joining a society, or visiting the Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, the opportunities are endless. Having moved to London from Brisbane, Australia, it can sometimes be a very busy, overwhelming place. It is wonderful to have somewhere like Goldsmiths with such a friendly community that always makes you feel welcome!"
