​​​​​​Residential events and summer schools

​​Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have made the decision to cancel our 2020 summer schools and residentials.

Communications will be sent to all applicants with further information, so please keep an eye on your emails and post. While the team are disappointed not to be able to welcome students for these opportunities this summer, we look ahead to summer 2021 when we hope to be able to run these again.

​​Event: Enoch (online exhibition) The Heavenly Wanderer
Take part: https://www.bookofenoch2020.com/schools-and-colleges

​Details:

This virtual exhibition is based on an ancient Jewish text called 1 Enoch, which only survived in full in Ethiopia, where it is regarded as part of the Bible.

Students and staff are invited to experience the exhibition virtually and record their responses to the artwork and the text, using any medium to create a response to the exhibition, such as painting, collage, sculpture or photography or by writing a short essay of no more than 250 words/ Vlog (5 mins maximum).

Selected entries will be chosen by academics who will print and display entries, along with the students’ names and schools and these will be displayed in Gloucester & Canterbury Cathedrals*. In addition, they will also be available to view them via the University of Gloucestershire’s website.

*It is the intention that entries will be displayed in public venues such as cathedrals, however this is subject to change based on government guidelines for Covid-19.

Responses to the exhibition must be submitted by 17:00 on October 31, 2020 (extended from 31 August). Have a question? Get in touch with the outreach team outreach@glos.ac.uk
