Arts Week begins
Univ’s Arts Week got off to a flying start with the launch of Roots and Their Branches, Univ’s new liberation-themed magazine, last night in the Butler Room. This marked the start of the week’s events, which are themed around “Inclusivity”.
Today, there is a concert in the Master’s Lodgings at 7.30pm. College Archivist Dr Robin Darwall-Smith is giving a tour of Univ’s Art Collection on Tuesday in addition to a Welfare “Artea” and LGBTQ+ film night. Wednesday brings an Open Mic Night in the bar as well as club night at Cellar. On Thursday, Amanda Brookfield, bestselling author and the new Univ Visitor in the Creative Arts, will be discussing how she became a writer at 4pm in her room (9:3). Other events include photography in the Botanical Gardens, life-drawing and a DJ workshop.
Isabelle Davies, one of the Arts reps, commented: “Josh (Sayer, the other Arts rep) and I decided that there should be a theme and we settled on ‘Inclusivity’ as there hasn’t been an Arts Week for a couple of years now so we wanted all to feel welcome and to get creative in a variety of ways. Following this theme, we worked with all the other college reps to come up with at least one event, so there’s hopefully something for everyone to get involved with.”
