Goldsmiths Visual Cultures Society exhibition: call for entries

“Take Up Space”

“In a world dominated by stereotypes, rules that we must conform to, our voices are bounded by society’s demands of ‘must do’s’ and ‘should nots’. ‘Take up space’ showcases a range of work that encourages a resistance against conforming to society’s expectations of gender roles and identity. We are worthy of taking a stand and to demand for our voices to be heard.

We’re welcoming Goldsmiths students from all departments to apply and have a chance to be a part of this opportunity. Be it a performative piece, a comic or an artwork, show it to us and take up your space in this exhibition! Applications are open until 6th of February, apply now by emailing us at goldsmithsvcs[@]gmail.com with your work and a max. 100 word description. Work needs to be available from 13th-16th February.”

Digital Portfolios for Design

7 February, 13:00-14:00

The Hexagon, Lockwood Building

Designing your own digital portfolio can be a daunting task.  What should it look  like? How do you select what to include?  How can I stand out from the crowd? Whether you have just started thinking about it or already have a draft document or site, this session will support you in developing your ideas and getting some feedback on what works. By the end of the session you will:

  • Review what makes a successful digital portfolio
  • Understand the purpose of a digital portfolio
  • Review what to include and how
  • Start or work on a draft
  • Share useful resources

No need to book, just turn up! See you there. Send any queries to Karen Deadfield in Careers, k.deadfield[a]gold.ac.uk.
