Journalism / Graphic Design Students needed –
Opportunities for one week project at Resort Studio, Margate, 6-10 July
(Margate Resort Studio & Postgraduate Community Funded Project)
Deadline for interest : 30th June
“The Shed at Resort” is a Margate Resort Studio & Postgraduate Community Funded student project. This student project involves building a shed-like-structure at Resort Studios gallery space using found/free local materials in and around Cliftonville, Margate. The overall ambition is to create a community focused event that will engage people in thinking about their surroundings and how we can reuse materials to create public spaces. The stories and information they discover about Margate and its community will go towards an online publication and a blog, documenting Margate’s collective memories.
We all come from different backgrounds; Antony Shum (PgDip Photography Portfolio Development, LCC), Ella Phillips, Inés Cámara Leret (MFA Fine Art, Wimbledon) and Rita Byon (MA Visual Arts, Book Arts, Camberwell). We would like to have a student from Journalism or Graphic Design join their cross-disciplinary team to take part in documenting the stories and project progress and publishing this on the dedicated blog site. Most of the team’s expenses will be covered by the fund. This would be a great opportunity to participate in this project with us in the beautiful seaside town in July.
