Thank you to our supporters

We appreciate your contributions very much. It means a huge amount, not only for the material difference that it makes to our students, colleagues and local communities, but also because it shows togetherness and fellowship.

In a year such as 2020, never has this been or felt more important.

In this round-up on your giving we highlight special use of funds made during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic; scholarship funding; support given in the wider community; Forensic Architecture; the CCA and volunteering with a focus on mentoring and work placements.

A thank you message from the Warden of Goldsmiths

Your donation put to work

Our regular donors came to the rescue of students during Covid-19

Your support has touched us in many places. One invaluable example is this: we were able to use the regular donations given by countless generous alumni and friends to create a fund to help students urgently purchase laptops and broadband connections when all our teaching suddenly went online due to the pandemic.

We could never have predicted the need to do this, and certainly hadn’t budgeted for it! And for over 300 students who had no means to stay connected with their tutors, their studies and the College, it is no exaggeration to say that this was an absolute life-line.

Santander Universities UK

Santander Universities UK – who make numerous grants to Goldsmiths, also gave again during the pandemic earlier in the year both to alleviate student hardship and to support student business start-ups during a summer when the usual employment and funding opportunities were in short supply.

Santander gave us permission to repurpose any of their philanthropic funding for 2019-2020 that we could no longer spend as originally planned, in order to support our students and communities during the Coronavirus pandemic.  As a result, we set up a number of Student Consultancy projects, where current students went to work with local SME’s to support them with their business needs and challenges during the pandemic.

In May, we also received an additional £25,000 from Santander to support students over the summer months, when many students would have normally been working, with grants of between £500 and £2,000 in two key areas; student hardship and student founders in early stage start-ups.

In collaboration with ICCE (Institute of Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship) at Goldsmiths, we set up the Santander Universities Covid-19 Enterprise Awards – where students and alumni with an existing business or business model, with a vision to alleviate the impact of Covid-19 on the local community, were eligible to apply. In total, the Awards supported 20 student/alumni entrepreneurs.

The Big Print – supported by alumna Dr Patsy Hickman

Academics at Goldsmiths, University of London are working together with partners from across society to understand and help prevent the spread of Covid-19 and its far-reaching impact on our lives.

“It was an honour to help. And thank you to all my pals who also chipped in.  But it was the young technician in the Computing department who was the genius.”

Dr Patsy Hickman

As part of this wide-spread effort, back in March a team from the Department of Computing at Goldsmiths set up 3D printing production stations in their homes as part of a national campaign to provide health and social care workers with thousands of new face masks.

Dr Theo Papatheodorou from the Department of Computing said that the University’s five 3D printers worked day and night producing stacks of PPE (personal protection equipment) shields, delivered straight to NHS frontline staff, such as those in hospitals, GPs and pharmacies.

How scholarships enrich the student experience

Without philanthropic support higher education remains out of reach for many outstanding candidates. Scholarships are funded by a variety of donors – individuals, Trusts and Foundations and corporate bodies and we thank all of them on behalf of their scholars.

Their generosity makes a huge difference – to the individual students, to Goldsmiths and to the individual departments. With the rise in the cost of higher education, scholarships have never been more important to ensure the College maintains a diverse and highly talented student body.

One such donor is the Fondazione Paolo Bulgari which has donated six scholarships in the Art Department. The first two recipients graduated in July. We are truly grateful to the Fondazione Paolo Bulgari.

Penny Burkett celebrates wearing a graduation gown

Penny Burkett – the Maria Bulgari Scholarship 2017-2020

Penny graduated with a First Class degree in Fine Art and History of Art.

Penny’s tutor says: “Penny flourished in studio and visual cultures during her time on the Fine Art and History of Art programme. She was a pleasure to teach.

She stood out as an exceptionally intelligent and committed independent learner.

For instance, she successfully campaigned to affiliate Nightline for Goldsmiths, was employed as a researcher for Goldsmith’s Anti-Ableism group, created a handbook for disabled students and worked as an accessibility and inclusion officer for Goldsmiths.

Penny was also a vocal and effective student representative, demonstrating a warm and generous spirit to include those on the periphery.

I have no doubt that the Bulgari Scholarship enabled Penny to achieve her potential by improving confidence and removing economic hardship so she could concentrate on her studies and the things that mattered to her.”

“The Bulgari Scholarship has supported me to engage the best version of myself throughout my three years at Goldsmiths”

Penny Burkett

Penny says: “I have so much to thank the Bulgari Foundation for.

I can’t believe that my final year at Goldsmiths University has finished.

I’m over the moon too that I have received a First Class Honours and the Students’ Union award for Outstanding Contribution to Student Community and Welfare. There are no doubts that this has been made possible by the Bulgari Scholarship: It has supported me to engage the best version of myself throughout my three years at Goldsmiths. Without it, I would have had to work several jobs and not had the time or energy to engage with both the curriculum and extracurricular activities that have given back to me tenfold what I have put into them.

I hope the Foundation continues to support students throughout their time at Goldsmiths and I would like to press upon it the immeasurable difference that the Bulgari Scholarships can make.”

How Goldsmiths supports our wider community

As a civic university, Goldsmiths is actively involved with its local community, and contributes to the educational, economic and social development of New Cross and Lewisham.  

Our Widening Participation team has extensive experience and knowledge of the borough and, in particular, the issues facing local young people. Working in partnership with schools, colleges and other organisations, we offer young people opportunities to engage through initiatives like the National Saturday Club, Alchemy and an academic tutoring project with local venture charity, TeamUp. 

Alchemy Project

The Alchemy Project – funded by Deptford Challenge Trust

Alchemy is a professional creative music lab for local young people aged 14-18, who meet every Saturday, collaborating to create original music and develop performance, composition and production skills.

Young people work with professional and student musicians and producers, with additional support from youth work students from the University’s Social, Therapeutic and Community Studies (STaCS) department.

Alchemy is directed by musician and Goldsmiths associate lecturer Mikey Kirkpatrick, and works with external partners the Albany theatre in Deptford, and Addey and Stanhope, Deptford Green and Prendergast Vale schools.

Informed and co-owned by young people, Alchemy is a space for them to learn in a positive and low-stress environment. It is also a place where they can work independently and in collaboration with others, forge positive relationships, and build social skills and self-confidence.

Prior to the Covid-19 lockdown, Alchemy have performed live at the Albany, the Lewisham Live Festival, and Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art – and the pandemic will not stop this group of talented young individuals from making music together.

In the 2020/21 academic year, Alchemy will be releasing an ‘Isolation mixtape’ of fragments and complete tracks composed at home to be developed into a mixtape and released across all platforms, as well as two other digital mixtape releases.

They will also be collaborating with local cultural institutions the Horniman Museum, the Migration Museum and Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, responding to exhibitions and working with the collections.

We are so grateful to the Deptford Challenge Trust for the funding to carry this important work which gives local young people a safe space to grow, learn and bond.

Programme spotlight

Forensic Architecture

Forensic Architecture, an investigative research agency based in the Visual Cultures department under the direction of Professor Eyal Weizman, made a number of decisive impacts around the world in 2020.

Their series of investigations into violence at the river border between Greece and Turkey cut through the ‘fake news’ to identify the likely killers of two refugees, while also exposing the illegal practice of extra-judicial deportations, or ‘pushbacks’ – raising difficult questions for the EU’s border agencies in European Parliament.

In October, their investigation into an Athens murder (published in 2019) contributed to a landmark ruling against 68 members of the ‘Golden Dawn’ neo-Nazi organisation, including former Greek MPs, in Greece’s longest ever criminal trial.

The Turner Prize-nominated group, which uses innovative techniques of open source research, spatial analysis, and investigative aesthetics to examine cases of human rights violations by states, police forces, and militaries, also published their first major UK-focused investigation this year.

Their investigation into the 2011 killing of Mark Duggan, whose killing by Metropolitan Police officers sparked days of national unrest, was published in June, in the midst of global protests following the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

The investigation used digital models, biomechanical analysis, and publicly available documents to expose critical inconsistencies in the story of the case, forcing the national police watchdog, the IOPC, to consider re-opening their original investigation after nearly a decade.

Forensic Architecture is primarily funded through successive grants from the European Research Council, Europe’s foremost academic funding body.

Additional general support comes from private funders and grant-making institutions with interests in human rights, arts, technology and journalism, as well as from project commissions and exhibitions of the agency’s works.

Goldsmiths CCA under Covid-19

In response to the temporary closure of the gallery during the Covid-19 lockdown, Goldsmiths CCA launched CCA Streams; a digital programme that allowed for ongoing contact with art and artists, and that could be enjoyed from home. The programme included audio-visual works by previously exhibited artists, friends of the gallery, and artworks with prescient themes.

We were delighted to reopen the doors of the gallery in September 2020 and welcome visitors to three new shows: SOLOS, featuring newly commissioned works by four local artists created during lockdown; Hollis Frampton: Photographs, the first UK retrospective of Hollis Frampton’s work in photography to date; and our latest Episode, Sophie Barber: The Greatest Song A Songbird Ever Sung.

“We celebrated a two-year anniversary not by looking back, but by looking into the future of the CCA.”

Sarah McCrory, Director of Goldsmiths CCA

Sarah McCrory, Director of the CCA says: “The last year, with all of its challenges, has been an incredibly rich and interesting one for the gallery.

“We’ve welcomed artists and audiences of all ages and backgrounds and have celebrated a two-year anniversary not by looking back, but by looking into the future of the CCA.

“We celebrated by thinking about how we can continue to evolve and change, and how we can continue to support artists and their ability to respond to the issues that surround us today. We’re proud of the work we’ve done to date which couldn’t have happened without the support of our generous Patrons.”

To view full details of all the exhibitions, events and related images in the last and forthcoming year’s calendar please visit the gallery’s website:

Spotlight on volunteering

We want to thank the many alumni and organisations who have shared their time, energy and spirit, acting as speakers and mentors and providing work placements.

This huge encouragement and inspiration for students as they find their feet in an uncertain world is exactly what is needed, now more than ever.

Every year, alumni donate their skills, expertise and knowledge to the Goldsmiths community.

Whether they are providing a graduate profile, mentoring, giving keynote talks, answering questions from prospective students, organising events, or participating in panel discussions, we remain grateful for their time and awed by their impact.

To find out about all the ways former students can volunteer their help and how to express interest:

A portrait of Reema Ahmad Choudhury

Why I mentor: Reema Ahmad Choudhury

After meeting with Goldsmiths’ Institute of Management Studies students last year to talk to them about my 16 years in the banking industry, I had the incredible opportunity to mentor two highly ambitious and talented female students. 

Mentoring these women enhanced their understanding of industry, allowing them to further explore the types of jobs and careers they intended to pursue. Their astute natures helped them navigate through each session with ease as they knew exactly what they needed from me.

We evaluated their key skills and strengths, discussing how to use these to their advantage. Both women were also keen to learn how to market themselves. So we spent time working together on everything from punchy CV writing to sophisticated interview techniques.

“The mentorship opportunity that you have created has been great! I am very happy to have been a part of it.

Despite these circumstances (Covid 19), I was still able to schedule a zoom call with my mentor and was able to listen to her advice. I learned a lot about myself through her, she made me feel confident in myself and made me believe more in myself.”

Viktorija Kasetaite (Reema’s Mentee)

However, the honour was all mine.  Having the opportunity to give back to Goldsmiths is an amazing and humbling privilege. Engaging with the next generation of the work force fills me with pride, knowing that I can share with the students my career experiences – good and bad – to maximise their own career opportunities.  

Support is essential for students to get a foot onto the career ladder, especially in the current challenging job market. For me, mentoring has truly been a fulfilling experience and I’m delighted that I was given the opportunity to sign up for it. A worthy initiative indeed!

Work placements during Covid-19 – Malikah Ullah

Malikah Ullah, an undergraduate Psychology student, is currently completing a remote internship with South African non-profit, Ikamva Labantwana.

She was awarded funding from Santander Universities to help cover the costs of her placement. Malikah is blogging about her experience of interning virtually.

“Since June, I have been an intern at South Africa’s Ikamva Labantwana which means ‘our children’s future’ in Xhosa. As a centre for at-risk children, I identify with the beliefs of Ikamva strongly; especially on the importance of education.”

Thank you!

On our supporter list we have acknowledged each and every one of our donors and volunteers who gave in the last college financial year (1 August 2019 – 31 July 2020) – please take the time to look at this and know that your collective generosity has made a difference.

On behalf of all students and colleagues at Goldsmiths thank you so much for your ongoing support.
