The Royal College of Art will be in Newcastle, UK on 20 February 2024.

Ready to take the next step in your creative practice, and join a world-leading network of artists, designers, creators and innovators? What are the essential strategies in creating a compelling art and design portfolio?

You’re invited to meet Professor Graeme Brooker (Head of Programme, Interior Design MA) in Newcastle, UK on 20 February 2024, for an in-person conversation addressing these talking points - and many more.

What to expect

4.45pm - Guest arrivals, refreshments served

5.15pm - Talk followed by informal group portfolio workshop (you don't need to have a portfolio ready to join this part of the session - you're welcome to simply observe)

6.30pm - End

We'd love you to join for all parts of the event but if you can only join for part of it, that's fine too.

Who is this event for

  • Those interested in postgraduate study at the Royal College of Art, especially at the School of Architecture
  • Current RCA applicants and offer-holders
  • Parents, guardians and family members are also welcome to join, though please ensure they have a ticket

You don't have to specialise in any discipline to attend this event: we welcome guests planning to apply to all subject areas.
