Claire Staunton

165.gif Three years ago, after a BA in French, with an obsession with experimental music and contemporary art, I found myself in an arts consultancy job that I didn’t want. I was becoming more active in producing and programming sonic and public art events at Whitechapel Gallery and with collectives in the street but I lacked the theoretical basis and knowledge needed for a more developmental and involved role. I always felt that going back to university was something that interested me especially considering my first degree was not something I was totally committed to and I missed the academic environment when at work.

I needed a solid knowledge base in contemporary art in order to engage with the works and artists. I spoke to a friend about Goldsmiths. Her glowing recommendation of the Visual Cultures department and her passion for her areas of interest convinced meA. Goldsmiths became more than just a pathway to a qualification and was an opportunity to reach my ambition to be a curator.
