Writing at Large

23 February 2017 | 6.30pm – 8pm

Kensington, Senior Common Room


The Critical Writing in Art & Design MA programme was established at the Royal College of Art in 2010 to develop new approaches to the practice of writing about the arts. It has been five years since the first cohort of students graduated. They have proved to be highly resourceful and creative individuals, despite the challenges of making a career in the arts today. They have published books; written for many of the leading art and design magazines; made podcasts and radio programmes; and even invented new publishing platforms for their ideas. Many combine their work as writers with doctoral research or working in arts organisations. On the evening of 23 February 2017 we are inviting a number of our graduates back to the College – including Jonathan P. Watts and Alice Butler –  to reflect on their experiences in a round-table discussion chaired by Paul Clinton of Frieze magazine. This event is free and open to all.
