UK Recruitment & Outreach deliver a programme of high quality art, design, media, performance and writing activities within the local and wider community of Cornwall and beyond. This programme provides opportunities for school pupils and community groups to engage in creativity and aim to improve knowledge and understanding of studying the arts at Higher Education level.
The team train and employ student ambassadors to help deliver and support outreach activities throughout the year. This enriches undergraduate learning and helps to strengthen the relationship between the University and local schools and community groups. The team work closely in partnership with many local arts organisations and venues such as KEAP (Kernow Education Arts Partnership), Falmouth Museum & Art Gallery, The National Maritime Museum Cornwall, Gyllyngdune Gardens, The National Trust and The Poly.
Recent outreach projects have included a major community mural design for Penryn Station, site-specific sculpture for Gyllyngdune Gardens, interior design for a local pre-school and art and design workshops in primary schools in the Falmouth and Penryn area.
New outreach initiatives include Saturday Art Clubs for 14 -19 year olds as well as further involvement in local community events and festivals such as Falmouth Spring Festival, Love Parks Week, Fal River Festival, Penryn Arts Week, The Big Draw, and Global Gardens.
