RGS students demonstrate their ARTiculation skills

RGS students Jack, Alice and Sarah with ON MaxThree Lower Sixth students, Alice Keown, Sarah Shepherd and Jack Brannen, travelled to Cambridge recently representing RGS at the Grand Final of the 2018 ARTiculation competition.

ARTiculation is a national public speaking competition where young people present talks about artists and their work discussing their curation, Art History and the cultural connections between their subject matter.

Alice, Sarah and Jack all made it through to the North East regional finals held at BALTIC and were then invited to attend the Grand Final to hear all of the national finalists' presentations and take a tour of Cambridge's art collections and architecture. 

RGS student Alice with ON RamitAll three have enhanced their research and presentation skills over the duration of the competition and will discuss how they found the competition with next year's potential entrants from RGS.

Whilst in Cambridge, the trio meet up with three Old Novos, Max Cooper Clark (10-17), Ramit Saksena (06-16) and Hannah Sheerin (13-15), all of who are studying Architecture at Cambridge. It was a super opportunity for Jack, Sarah and Alice to find out more about studying the subject, university life and living in Cambridge.
