Chelsea Salon Series 2011-12

Jamie Wang - Chelsea College of Art & Design 2010-11



AIM: The Chelsea Salon Series  is conceived as an initiative offering students the opportunity to meet outside the college premises in a variety of spaces to exchange ideas and forge productive relationships with galleries , arts institutions and the locality. Chelsea College of Art is well placed to take advantage of  the proximity of not-for–profit spaces who are eager to make these relationships. This forum is intended  as an opportunity for students to get feedback in their practice and to experiment with ideas arising from their research thereby gaining confidence.  It is also supporting student led teaching projects as well as alumni projects. It is specifically intended to be hugely enjoyable and based on student interaction. 
The Chelsea Salon Series is structured in such a way that allows for both PRACTICE and RESEARCH to be pursued alongside the curriculum in relaxed surroundings outside the academic  institution with fellow MA Fine Art students and other invited artists ,alumni, curators and arts professionals. Although centered around Chelsea specifically it is intended to be inclusive and open . and that this remit could help pave the way for support from educational charities.
