The recent fee increases for university humanities degrees will have knock-on effect for the arts. Fleur Kilpatrick argues that now is the time to show pride in arts degrees and where they could take you.
The arts and university sectors have a lot in common: we share people (hello, I’m a playwright) but we also train you up and we welcome you back for further study when you want to do a beautiful, obsessive deep dive into your practice and research your artform. We love that. We often commission you (Born In A Taxi are in residence with us this year and making incredible work) or we place our students as interns within your work (yes, we provided your last three assistant stage managers, four assistant directors and loaned you that projector). But, most importantly, we are shared victims of pervasive myths that question our worth – and these myths are now having a devastating impact.
