Nurturing creative practice alongside academic knowledge
A new creative venture from the Faculty of Arts will help develop the University as a powerhouse for the artistic, cultural, creative and media industries in the region and beyond. The new School of Creative Arts, Performance and Visual Cultures will redefine Warwick’s teaching and research in the arts, cultural and creative industries – offering great opportunities for students, graduates, external partners, academics and for public engagement.
A significant marker in the construction of the new Faculty of Arts Building. The commencement of demolition of the old Car Park 7. On Tuesday 8 May, representatives from the contractors Bowmer and Kirkland joined Alastair Dixon from the Estates Office and Diana Stonefield, the Director of Administration for the Faculty of Arts, to mark the start of the demolition of Car Park 7. The new Faculty of Arts building will be constructed on the site of Car Park 7 and is anticipated to be completed by 2021.
Dr Kathryn Woods (Arts Faculty Director of Student Experience) and Dr Damien Homer (Arts Faculty Widening Participation Co-ordinator) have recently been awarded funding by the Warwick International Higher Education Academy (WIHEA) for a project which aims to support student engagement and the student experience before arrival at University right through to academic induction. Working together, the project leads and a team of Student Creative Assistants will develop an online Moodle resource full of myth-busting information about academic life and learning in the Faculty of Arts.
