UAL x RA POWERPOINT PARTY - Open Call for Presentations

We want your ideas for a 3 minute PowerPoint presentation- on any subject!

Taking inspiration from the ‘PowerPoint parties’ held in US Colleges, where groups of friends give presentations on any topic for 3 mins in total, we are inviting UAL students to propose ideas for presentations for Saturday 30th June for an afternoon takeover in the RA’s Lecture Theatre as part of the RA Summer Festival. This can be on ANY SUBJECT.

What you need to do:

Please submit: A title of the talk and draft PowerPoint presentation (note this can be changed, but gives us a sense of your talks content)

The UAL student curators will select the final talks based on your proposals and you will have time to work on your presentation ahead of the event.

On Sat 30th June, the sessions will take place in the Royal Academy’s prestigious and newly designed Benjamin West Lecture Theatre.
