AA2A Student Rep Highlights 2018-19

This year AA2A Student Reps have helped students get the most out of having practicing artists working alongside them by raising awareness, encouraging communication and collaboration. Here are some of this years highlights.

What Reps said about AA2A and working alongside Artists...

  • "Working with AA2A in my first semester has honestly been a privilege. The time I've been able to spend working alongside our hosted artists has already been so crucial to my own practice and development, from the potential for networking, to second opinions on practice and process." Jack Drummond, Loughborough University
  • "It has been an amazing experience to be a part of it and the network it represents"  Rodrigo Costa, Coventry University
