Students strike over facilities

Design students at Camberwell School of Art are on strike over what they call the ever-decreasing quality of resources. An occupation of first-floor premises by students from across the school began last week, but has not prevented classes from taking place.

Camberwell graphic design student representative Adam Farley says the action is in protest at the quality of facilities at Camberwell, but is no reflection on the standard of teaching.

“We have given the Dean a list of demands which concern us. The computers are old, the software is out of date so we cannot get the training we need. Now that Camberwell has implemented the [non-subsidisation of] fees it becomes more personal.” he adds.

Representatives of Camberwell School of Art were unavailable for comment as Design Week went to press.
