I arrived in London on Friday, and although it's been a short visit to London, it's been a great time so far... visiting family, amazing cousins, amazing nieces and nephews, eating a ton, and then today, also visiting Goldsmiths University! It's one of the places I am considering for grad school and so I thought it best to visit and find out more - get a vibe for the school, it's administration and profs and for the area. The programs I am looking into there are the MFA and the Masters in Children's Literature and Illustration. Today I made it out to the final day of the MFA exhibit and most definitely saw some interesting stuff. The highlights of the exhibit, for myself, were the pieces dealing with identity and pluralism... and also a performance artist singing and dancing in a room covered in graffiti- made my day 🤗 and wishing I had taken a video. The campus itself is almost village-like, the views are great, it's close to central London, the area is cute and they do offer housing on campus. Studios are a good size too! Tomorrow I'll be talking in greater detail with someone about the 2 specific programs, and then... Italy... here I come!
