‘The Price of War’ : Recording, Publishing and Preserving Art, 1939-1945 - Paul Mellon Centre’s display, Monday to Friday 10am-5pm

The display, which is free and open Monday to Friday 10am-5pm, is called: ‘The Price of War’ : Recording, Publishing and Preserving Art, 1939-1945.
It focusses on items created between 1938 and 1949 and explores the exhibition, publication, protection, destruction and restitution of art in wartime. It is not a comprehensive look at this period but rather an exploration of these themes through individual items in the Centre’s archive and library collections. See more info on Paul Mellon Centre’s website.

Student assistants required for Admissions

The admissions team are seeking keen student assistants to help with tours of the buildings for prospective students.

We require help on an ad-hoc basis throughout Term 2 and Term 3. Tours generally last 30 minutes and there’s a maximum 4 tours per day. Some weeks it will be very busy, with interviews scheduled each day. Other weeks we might only have 1 day of interviews (hence 4 tours max). Therefore you do need to be flexible, or fit in tours around your existing student assistants duties (max 10 hours per week).

The tours are for groups of undergraduate students who have come to the AA for an admissions interview. Therefore, need to be confident talking to groups of people, and know you’re way around the school & studios.  

If you are a registered student assistant, or are eligible to apply for an assistantship role (see the procedure under the jobs section of the website), please contact Kirstie Little via email: Kirstie.little@aaschool.ac.uk by Friday 17 February 2017 at the latest.
