Funding success for Wetlands Hub project from School of Music & Fine Art


Wetlands, a student group led by Nadia Perrotta, MA Fine Art, School of Music & Fine Art, has been awarded a grant of £5,000 from the University of Kent Student Projects Grant Scheme for their project Wetlands Hub, to build an archive of documentation and film works about the local maritime history and the wetland landscape. This is the second time that the group has been awarded funding to run the project!

This year the Panel was chaired by the Director of Student Services and assisted by core members including representatives from Kent Union, the three Faculties, the donor community and the Development Office. The Panel was very impressed with the application and decided to allocate the full grant (i.e. £5,000) applied for.

Said Nadia: “I feel privileged to have received the funding and I would like to thank the donors for their support. Wetlands Hub will consist of an archive of site specific, sound and video works made by the students of SMFA in Medway. The archive will be accessible online. Selections of works will be also showcased in a pop up exhibition space, in the town centre. We are a group of 24 Fine Art and Music students, but everyone across the School of Music & Fine Art will be able to submit works to the archive and be part of the events at the pop up art space.”
