Georgina DaviesHello, my name is Georgina Davies and I am a second year History of Art student running for the School of Culture and Creative Arts Representative on 5th-6th March 2014 in the GUSRC elections. I felt as though my course was poorly organised this year which has led to great dissatisfaction within the class and a frustration that our views and opinions were not taken seriously enough by the faculty. This has led me to consider a greater interaction with the University and the Student Representative Council seemed like a good place to start. I would like to have the opportunity to represent the concerns of the School of Culture and Creative Arts, whether they be of the majority or the minority, as I believe that education is important and that those with high aspirations deserve the chance to succeed.

My aims:

  • Represent the concerns and opinions of the student body within the School of Culture and Creative Arts.
  • Ensure that the resources and/or resource centres for each subject are easily accessible to all students and comply to a high enough standard.
  • Encourage the communication and involvement of GUU and the QMU with the School of Culture and Creative Arts, with the view to setting up a general arts club for the enjoyment of lesser represented art forms at the University. This would include trips to performance art – such as ballet, theatre and concerts – and entertain the possibility of going abroad biannually for social and art appreciative purposes.
  • Forge closer links with The Glasgow School of Art (GSA).
  • Expand the study abroad opportunities for those taking a subject within the School of Culture and Creative Arts; the only opportunity currently available for those studying History of Art is at the University of Bonn (for example).

Thank you for reading my manifesto. I would be dedicated to making the most of the Glasgow Art scene as well as representing individuals. Please vote Georgina Davies for SRC School of Culture and Creative Arts Rep. between 5th March, 9am and 6th March, 5pm.
