123.gif The university has such a creative fun atmosphere. The Drama Department is a thriving laboratory for developing contemporary practice, and their programming of special events and residential guest artists and tutors serves the students’ desire to learn from the best and to locate themselves within the profession. There are also exciting opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration.

My MA from Goldsmiths has undoubtedly set me up for my career in the arts, and the warm and supportive staff made for a year of fun, debate, stimulation, and loads of learning. At present, I work as a writer in residence in prison, am learning manager for a dance education project, and have been working as an artist facilitator for Contacting the World which is an international youth theatre festival which runs biannually. I have worked in New York, Rio, Zambia, Gdansk, Manchester and London.

I still attend events, and have remained a member of the library so that I can continue to enjoy the atmosphere of Goldsmiths.
