COVENTRY UNIVERSITY’S School of Art and Design has just released its events calendar for 2009, commencing early January and concluding late June. As always, the scheduled events and guest appearances will no doubt have something for everyone.
For third year undergraduate students especially, this is the busiest and perhaps proudest time of their degree where they present their final year efforts to the academic and wider world.
From April to May, students from across CSAD, including Media and Communication (MA), Industrial Design (ID), Design and Visual Arts (DVA), and Performing Arts (PA) will hold their respective exhibitions.
There will also be a number of lectures and seminars from prominent figures from the working world who will be talking to students and the general public about their rise to the top of their respective profession.
One such figure is the Chief Executive of the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA), Chris Aylett.
On the 26th February in the Graduate Centre, he will be talking about the Business World of Global Motorsport. His talk will be extremely pertinent considering Honda’s recent departure from Formula 1 and so too Suzuki’s and Subaru’s decision to quit the World Rally Championship.
There will also be a series of ‘Lunchtime Concerts’ as arranged and organised by Associate Senior Lecturer, Julian Hellaby.
Performances will include Philip Mead (Piano and Electronics), Catriona Lang (Soprano) and Julian Hellaby (Piano), String Theory (Classical/Jazz/Metal Fusion), and concluded by Coventry University’s very own music students who will have the unique opportunity to perform at an event organised especially for them.
Media lecture series, Coventry Conversations has again lined up a number of prolific names from the media world for an hour of talk each and every Thursday lunchtime in the Ellen Terry Building
