Art History Society (ArtHistSoc)

We are a lively and vibrant Society who hold talks, film screenings, trips - and everything in between! Recent events have included a screening of Loving Vincent (2017), a talk on Surrealism from Antony Penrose, and trips to the Royal Pavilion, Towner, the Jerwood, and the Battle of Hastings Reenactment at Battle Abbey.
Over the coming year we will be running film screenings, talks, trips, and Society tours. We also advertise volunteering and job opportunities, so if you would like to get involved in the local arts scene beyond the university, then we are the society for you.
Our events are for everyone at the University with an interest in art, visual culture, museums, galleries, and heritage. You don't have to be taking courses in art history, as our events are open to all.
Please join our Facebook group, and follow our Facebook page to keep up-to-date with our exciting events!

ArtHistSoc practices a safe space and zero tolerance policy. 
We have an open door policy: all students, staff and faculty are welcome to any of our events, regardless of age, gender, orientation, religion, race, or social background.
This means that at our meetings and events, our members can feel safe and supported, with no concerns about discrimination. 
'Zero tolerance' means that if people breach this understanding, we will not stand for it.
