So many questions, right!? Come along to ERIC Festival on 25th June 2017. We’ll be focusing on the opportunities, realities and questions around getting a career in the Theatre & Performing Arts industry. We'll be talking about on-stage careers, but we’ll also be exploring the behind the curtain roles for those that have a passion in the arts, but aren't performers themselves.There is a difference between our events and normal career fairs - we host them all in amazing locations and make sure we create an immersive 'festival' vibe. Interactive technology, innovative exhibitors, industry workshops, free stuff... this is the careers fair that aspiring creatives can’t get enough of. A special thank you to our partners The h.

Join us in a celebration of the capital's rich history of art, architecture and alcohol as part of a special series of Art History in the Pub events across London. For this special London History Day edition we are joined by Christine Riding; author, head of art and curator of the Queen’s House at Royal Museums Greenwich and chair of the Association of Art Historians. Christine draws upon her expertise in Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-century British Art to reveal a seamier side of London and the Smithfields home of Grade II listed pub The Hope whose Juniper Room Gin Parlour provides a suitably Dickensian backdrop for this special London History Day talk. This event is part of Historic England’s first ever London History Day on Wednesday 31 May - the date that Big Ben first started keeping time in 1859 - and included in a unique one day programme involving over forty of the capital''s museums and galleries.        FAQ's How does Art History In The Pub work? Art History in in the Pub talks are always very informal. The talks are of general interest, and anyone is welcome to come along and listen and ask questions. Talks usually last for about 30 minutes, with a break for getting extra drinks, followed by general discussion. Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? Art History In The Pub (AHITP) events are for over-18's only as they are hosted on licensed premises. Many of the pubs where we hold events have a policy to ask people to prove that they are over 18. If you look under 21 years of age we would advise you to bring along identiification that will allow you to prove your age.   How can I contact the organiser with any questions? You can contact us by email at [email protected]   Do I have to register for this event?  Usually our AHITP events are un-ticketed. This particular AHITP event is slightly different as The Juniper Room (the gin parlour upstairs at The Hope) has a capacity of 25 people, so you do need to register.

Due to the popularity of the recent SGGB art event by artist/alum Lisa Cirenza, we have asked Lisa to host another event for the Stanford Women's Network in the UK. Please join fellow SWNUK members and artist/alum Lisa Cirenza for an evening of art, chat, wine and nibbles. With a casual Q&A format we will be discussing a wide breadth of potential art related topics with the role of tech and traditional techniques in contemporary art practices as our anchor. Lisa’s work explores the connections between cultural narratives and moments in time that are often viewed as incompatible; and expresses this through the use of tech and traditional mediums, often also viewed as incompatible. For more on Lisa's work: Canapes and networking at 6:30pm with a punctual start at 7:15pm.
