Do I have to be an art history student to take part?
This opportunity is open to all UEA students. We are keen to support all students with an interest in sharing and developing their ideas.
What if I’m shy at public speaking?
You will receive practical guidance on public speaking, and we will share top tips for public engagement and facilitating conversations. The project is designed to equip you to feel confident delivering a gallery talk at the Sainsbury Centre.
Will I need to complete work outside the sessions?
There will be some preparation to do in between the sessions, although how much time you commit to this is up to you. We understand that you will have to balance this with your studies.
Will I get paid?
Students will be paid for delivering gallery talks. The fee is based on the UEA Associate Tutor rate of £38.57 per hour.
