MA student Soriya Labovitch wins Summer School Scholarship

Soriya Labovitch, an MA Curating student in the School of Arts, was awarded a scholarship for Birth Rites Collection Summer School 2022. Well done, Soriya!

Birth Rites Collection Summer School is a unique programme of lectures, workshops, seminars and one-to-one tutorials designed to introduce participants to the collection and facilitate a dialogue between you, your practice and the artworks.

If you are a midwife, academic, curator, artist, medic, health professional, art historian or policy advisor, you will enter the course with your own skill set and finish with a bespoke multi-media pack of visual, textual, auditory and filmic material, to be used thereafter in your own future work or field of study.

Since the collection is now hosted at the University of Kent, Birth Rites offered three bursaries to University students and/or staff to attend the full September 2022 programme.

Soriya had previously co-curated the exhibition Unveiled (The Beaney, 2-31 July 2022).
