Glasgow School of Art - NOT BROKEN...

Our First NIGHT AND DAY Project will be in support against the closure of the Glasgow School of Art Ceramic's Department.

Student Ester Svensson will be Co-Curating the exhibit and has been heading the fight against the closure.

"The Head of Design at Glasgow School of Art, has recommended that no new undergraduates will be accepted for both the full and part-time Ceramic degree courses, which will therefore result in the end of undergraduate ceramic education in Scotland. This decision, taken in haste without any staff or student consultation will have major implications for Scottish design, culture and tourism. As ceramic students of GSA, we feel passionately that there is a promising future for ceramics in Scotland and are disappointed that GSA lacks the vision and courage to support a profitable and innovative element of the design school".

You can support this cause by signing the online petition.

The Exhibition opens this Friday - 29th Feb at 5pm and will run until Sunday 2nd March.

Reckless and stupid decision.
future students should not be denied the opportunity to acquire the technical skills needed to produce fine ceramics and earn a living in scotland as craftsmen and women of the highest quality.
