Celebrate the 2015 Platform Graduate Awards at Turner Contemporary, Margate

Saturday October 10th will celebrate the opening of the Platform Graduate Award 2015 exhibition.  The School of Music and Fine Art is delighted that three of our recently graduated BA (Hons) Fine Art students – Ben Crawford, Evdokia Georgiou and Nadia Perrotta are shortlisted for this prestigious award, and their work is currently exhibited at Turner Contemporary, Margate. Now in it’s third year, the Platform Graduate Award aims to support graduate professional development and nurture emerging talent from universities and colleges in the South East region.

Also on October 10th is the opening celebration for Risk, Turner Contemporary’s autumn exhibition – and much more! The day includes:

  • Artist Ruth Proctor enacting her falling stunt from a 4m high scaffold in the gallery
  • Thanet Parkour Academy leading workshops and creating guerrilla-style interventions in, on and around the building
  • Saxophonist Evan Parker playing improvisation experiments
  • Free workshops by the Platform artists
  • Networking with fellow students from East Kent Universities

Students from the University for the Creative Arts, Canterbury Christ Church University and University of Kent students can travel FREE to Margate. To book your free place on one of the coaches leaving from each university go to Platform-travel.eventbrite.co.uk
