The arts organisation visits and talks offered me practical experiences, and shaped my goals regarding working in the cultural industries

Main details

After finishing my BA in Taiwan, I decided to pursue my advanced studies in London, which is the best city to gain knowledge and experience in the arts and the cultural and creative industries.

I chose Goldsmiths due to its reputation for fostering a diverse and creative environment which provides both academic and practical training for students.

During the academic year 2019/20, I learnt a lot at Goldsmiths. The courses provided me with the theories and knowledge necessary to gain a deeper understanding as well as a broader overview of the value of the arts and culture in our society. The visits and talks from arts organisations offered me practical experience that shaped my own goals regarding working in the cultural industries.

On top of that, I met amazing friends from different countries from all over the world. We shared our ideas and developed strong connections that I hope will keep on flushing.

Now, I will start a new phase in my life as an arts administrator in the National Theatre and Concert Hall in Taiwan. I am grateful for having been able to stay in London for my postgraduate studies and appreciate those experience offered by Goldsmiths.
