V&A/RCA Masters Programme in History of Design
Open Evening and Scholarships
5.30 pm, Monday 20th March 2017, Blythe House, London, W14 0QX
The V&A/RCA History of Design programme is internationally recognised as a leading centre for study and research in the history of design and material culture at MA and PhD level. Our graduates go on to careers in museums and galleries, universities and the cultural and media sectors world-wide. For 2017, the programme introduces a new specialism in the History and Material Cultures of Performance, run jointly with the V&A’s Department of Theatre & Performance.
Prospective applicants are invited to an open evening to introduce the programme in general, and hear more about the new Performance specialism on offer. The event will be held at the V&A’s Archive and Collections Storage Facilities in Blythe House, Kensington Olympia, London. A presentation by tutors and curators will be followed by a chance to talk with past and present students and hear more about their projects. A behind-the-scenes tour of the facilities and collections, in the company of curators and tutors, will close the event.
The V&A/RCA History of Design programme is also delighted to announce two scholarships for the academic year 2017-2018:
