Follow up information and images from the Camberwell learning studio event

We had a fantastic afternoon on Thursday 2nd November at the Camberwell College of Arts learning studio event exploring the theme of ‘Online Identities’. The DIAL learning Studio event at Camberwell College of Arts was supported by DIAL project , CLTAD, CCW and the UAL Communities of Practice Fund.

It was a great turn out and we received some really positive feedback:

Student: "Really enjoyed the event, was great to talk to people about this sort of stuff especially the online identities and that sort of thing as that's my particular area of interest. I was one of the students on the Fine Art Digital MA. I'd definitely be interested in attending the symposium at Chelsea.  And yeah, cheers for the enjoyable and interesting afternoon."

Staff: "I thought the event was inspiring and productive. A great opportunity to meet others from UAL and to have a chance at trying something which may not be part of our usual daily delivery. ..... It’s all about promoting our work and continuing the drive towards the cutting edge of Art and Technology. If there is anything I can do to support your events in the future, please do not hesitate to ask."
