The challenge is to create a livery design that will feature on the car for the 2018 season.

    • Brookes Fine Art Guest Lecture & Screening: Iris Zaki,'Women in Sink'

      For the final event of this semester, the Brookes Fine Art Research unit (FAR) welcomes Israeli filmmaker Iris Zaki for a screening of her award-winning film, 'Women in Sink'. This extraordinary short film documents Zaki's time working at a Christian Arab-owned hair salon in Haifa, Israel. Through conversations with clients, she paints an unexpected choral portrait of a space that provides temporary freedom, where women share their differences and a community of views on politics, history and love.

  • Student Life in the School of Arts

    While your studies are a top priority, you will still want to make the most of everything else student life offers. Within the school there are always projects you can work on outside of your chosen field of study, it could be that you wish to work with students from other disciplines, creating the music for a film or digital media project, or filming a piece of performance art, the possibilities are many and various. This might be part of an assessed module or just something you would like to do for fun. Collaborations with students across different subjects is a good way to make more friends. The School of Arts are proud to run university wide initiatives such as The Documentary Club and the University Orchestra and Choir as well as many societies.
