Freedom and Liberation never comes from the top; Arts SU knows and believes in the power of grassroots campaigning. Campaigns are all about organising together to create change, whether it be laws, policies, structures, representation, behaviours, or something else entirely!

Make change

Grassroots campaigning is more than just influential people talking about issues impacting us – it’s doing something about it!

Here at Arts, we have a very loud and rich history of campaigns lead by UAL students. We’ve successfully won campaigns on Mental Health support; Extenuating Circumstances; Gender Neutral Toilets; International Student Fees; Disability awareness; and many more! Our work has previously reached a national audience. One of our most current and significant campaigns is on Cost of Living.

Somewhere inside of all of us is the power to change the world.
