‘I gained many new professional skills over the duration of the two-year Masters in Art and Research Collaboration, and the programme has put me in a great position to further develop my practical abilities and my professional career as an artist and designer. The networking opportunities were one of the most enjoyable experiences for me and I found that having conversations with the ARC alumni, including artists and curators, was really beneficial.
For my Major Project, I set out a very ambitious plan of establishing a new fashion label, and at the start of the two-year programme I wasn’t sure how I was going to achieve this, but with tutorial guidance and continuous support from my lecturers and my peer group, I designed and built my fashion-art brand Jai Jai and was very successful in doing so. I now have a strong network of collaborators and professional contacts and feel well prepared to continue developing Jai Jai as a business.’ – Jai Thorn
