Culture:Connect – Students discover the ‘Gateway to the City’ with RIBA North
On one of the sunniest days in October so far, twenty students from The School of the Arts took to the streets of Liverpool to discover the history behind some of Liverpool’s most famous buildings and streets. The session, run by RIBA North, took the students on a two hour walking tour around the City as they saw examples of brutalism, cantilever staircases, and baroque design. The students had a great time, and the Architecture students came away with lots of ideas for their upcoming projects.
The session was facilitated by Culture:Connect. Created by Learning and Teaching Support Officer Josephine Wilkin and Internationalisation/Study Abroad Officer Victoria Bates, Culture:Connect offers a series of workshops and events across Liverpool for SOTA students. Its aim is to encourage students to immerse themselves in the rich culture of Liverpool, feel connected to the City, and improve their study-life balance through constructive activities.
The next two Culture:Connect sessions, a film set tour and a trip to the pantomime, have completely sold out.
