About me

 

A recent graduate of Central Saint Martins BA (Hons) Culture, Criticism & Curation, I have developed excellent skills, adaptability and a competence for working in fast-paced environments within the creative industries. Due to my outstanding achievements, I was chosen to represent the student body as the speaker at the graduation ceremony and was one of eight students interviewed for UAL’s promotion of the Degree Shows 2015. You can find the full article here: http://www.arts.ac.uk/csm/csm-culture/central-saint-martins-degree-shows-2015/kimberley-cunningham-/ After working in film and theatre for five years, I enrolled at CSM to specialize in the dissemination of Contemporary Art. I have held professional curatorial positions within the university in my last two years of studies and undertaken several internships with leading cultural organisations.

  • The DIAL project (Digital Integration Into Arts Learning) is part of CLTAD the Centre for Learning and Teaching in Art and Design. DIAL focuses on the development of digital literacies in Arts Higher Education with the primary goal of improved graduate employability. The project's aim is to develop offline and online communities that build upon the need for students and graduates to have a professional online presence. My role is to develop a community within Central Saint Martins that discusses issues around Online Presence and its importance for an Art related practice. Through this research process I have developed two proposals that will be carried forward in the beginning of the new academic year.

2014

Symposium Curator

Dial

Jul 2014 - Nov 2014
  • I have been working with DIAL (Digital Integration into Arts Learning) a devision of CLTAD for the past six months as a community developer in CSM running focus groups around the theme of ‘online presence in creative practice’. From this my proposal for a symposium that deals with this subject was awarded a grant from the Communities of Practice Fund, and I have been leading the curation of the event as the sole student on the project. The aim of the symposium was to bring to the foreground the important discussion of online identity for art practices. The internet is no longer used merely as a portfolio display case; online presence is inherent in creative practice and retains various shades between personal and professional that often overlap. Speakers Included : David White (Head of Technology Enhanced Learning, University of the Arts London) Christian Payne aka. Documentary (Creative Technologist and Social Media Expert) Panel: Stina Gustaffson, Chris Fellows http://process.arts.ac.uk/category/project-groups/exploring-online-presence-creative-practice
