Come along to learn about the GSA Students' Association, The SRC (Student Representative Council) Committees, and how some of our key decisions around what happens at The Art School are made on:
Wed 18th October at 12pm in the Assembly Hall (of GSASA)!
There are many ways to formally represent yourself as a GSA Student, and joining a SRC Committees is one of them! Previously we had a General SRC Committee which dealt with all things GSASA related. We've now decided to break this into three more manageable groups: Socities Committee, Programmng Committee and Funding Committee, so that specific students who will benefit from either/or all of these topics can have a better focus within an area.
Any current GSA Student can join, from any department or year group! If you are a Class Rep or Lead Rep you are also still allowed to join these Committees.
During the intro we'll also share information about the Student Initiated Project Funding as well as Funding for Student Frundraiers that GSA students can apply for.
Hope to see you all on next Wednesday the 18th!
— The Funding Committee
discuss and allocate the funding which we award for Student Initiated Projects. They are a supportive group who help projects find valuable resources and ensure that GSASA are being fair in supporting students without overlooking any issues. This Committee is great for those who think they might apply for funding as part of their practice and would like more insight into what makes a successful application. It is also a great way to hear about different projects happening within the GSA world.
The Programming Committee
discuss the running of the GSASA and help to programme club nights, workshops, performances or anything extra curricular. They oversee and approve applications for Student Fundraisers. They are a creative group who push new ideas, and express their opinion on what works well and what doesn't. This Committee is great for those who may want to work as part of a venues programme or may like to put on an event at The Art School. It is a good opportunity to see how a largish venue is organised.
The Societies Committee
oversee all of our society group activities at GSASA, as well as feedback on any recent or upcoming society activities. They approve new societies and monitor the funding made available to, and received by existing societies. Importantly, the committee is a sociable group that brings people and projects together. If you are part of a society, your society must have representation on this committee to receive funding and additional support from GSASA and continue to be affiliated with us.
Student Initiated Project Funding
Each year the Student’s Association has £4500 to allocate towards student initiated projects that fall outside of the curriculum. *There is also an additional £1500 this year dedicated to supporting student publishing projects, donated by Friends of GSA.*
Funding & Support for Student Frundraiers
The Student’s Association has a dedicated resource to help raise money for various projects students want to fundraise for as a class or society. Running club nights, screenings, pub quizzes etc. are a great way to raise cash for non curricular events, encouraged alongside other GSA events!
