UAL’s IDEATE Society aims to remove any degree of separation between students. Year and course differences will be put aside for society meetings, events, and workshops, allowing rich discussion amongst students. From simply chatting about a subject to acting upon our thoughts, IDEATE will attempt to find common ground on particular interests. We will work together to see them through; whether this be a performance that everyone is keen to see, film nights, art workshops, and professional/personal development. IDEATE meetings will take place fortnightly, and will be treated as an open seminar where group/public speaking is encouraged.
Each session, a topic, voted for by society members through social media, will be the forefront of each discussion. We’re concerned with what all creatives care about, not just our committee. We value the opinions of each member! These discussions will flow in whatever direction its members take it, allowing for ideas to branch out into projects that we can create together. Whether you’re taking on a personal project, or desiring help from others, IDEATE will be there to support future endeavours.
As a member of the IDEATE Society, you will develop as an individual, in order to collaborate with other likeminded students across London. IDEATE is exclusive to no college, course, or year group at UAL, rather, it is open to all to convey their ideas and discuss them in a friendly, informal setting.
Disclaimer: the below talks, events, workshops etc. are examples of the first IDEATE activities we will display on social media, to give you a flavour of what we’re about. Society members will vote for what they wish to discuss. Official IDEATE meetings will occur separately to these suggested events/workshops. The meetings themselves will have a more organic approach of natural conversation.
BIO – ENERGETICS WORKSHOP
THEATRICAL WORKSHOP WITH ‘COMPLICITÉ’
Q. What exactly do we discuss in society meetings?
A. Anything that’s on your mind! You can speak your piece to a room of accepting people, because we are a welcoming presence where all discussions are laid bare.
Q. What can I gain from the society?
A. If you’re looking to improve your skills as an artist, collaborator, innovator, public speaker, and all-round creative, IDEATE is the place for you. We discuss an array of topics and act on them as we see fit.
Q. Will this take up a lot of my time?
A. Only as much as you intend on giving. As an open collaborative, you can step in during any discussion/project’s lifespan, because any contribution will be accepted with open arms. There are no mandatory meetings, discussions, workshops, as a member you’re free to come and go.
