Lunchbox Lectures

The Cass School of Art announces a programme of Monday lunchtime lectures where artists talk in exchange for their lunch.
Date: 3 November 2014

The CASS School of Art has great pleasure in announcing its Lunchbox Lectures. 

Over the next year the Fine Art area will host short, illustrated talks on Monday lunchtimes from Fine Art postgraduate students, art students currently in PhD at any UK university, and Fine Art graduates from recent Masters programmes. These test or rehearse thesis ideas or art project in progress before an audience of art students.

In return, the art school offers a London venue with presentation equipment, a one-hour slot at lunchtime in a curated series of lectures, a public (an audience of art students, tutors and alumni), feedback and the much-prized CASS Lunchbox. Not offered: speaker fee, travel costs or accommodation! In short, a happy academic arrangement, involving ideas of hospitality and generosity in the process of exchange.

The first three talks are in Central House, CE1-19 at 1.00 pm, as follows:

i-Phone Art
Jamie Jenkinson (MA Visual Communication, Royal College of Art)

amaCollective (on MA Curating the Contemporary at London Met CASS)

Henningham Family Press
Eddie Farrell (MA Fine Art, UCL Slade)
