Student Profile

Alice Helps, Graduated 2014, designs interactive artefacts and installations for performance, exhibitions and events, currently undertaking a PhD.

After ten years working in performance design, I sought to deconstruct my working practices, in order to expand my creative potential. The course exceeded expectations, challenging me to rigorously interrogate my process and question my creative habits, which opened up vital and exciting new pathways in my creative thinking.
