Projects By You is a scheme designed to share the Union’s resources & funds with the wider student body. Far too often students forget that they are the driving force of the Union’s activity. With a cash boost of £100 and access to Union resources, you can now apply for assistance in putting on your own events and campaigns!
We recently supported two Postgraduate students, Jodie & Gabriele, in putting on a Chekhov masterclass for the Postgraduate community. They had already spoken to their peers and found an appetite for this event, and had found a teacher that would be willing to teach the class. But don’t fear! You don’t need to have already done this forward planning – we are happy to support you with your idea at any stage.

“With the wide variety of content on Central's many courses plus pressure on rooms, it's inevitable that not everyone can do everything. Such a relief then to know the SU supported the PG body by offering a free event in a specialist theatre practice. It was so easy just to make it happen. If you are passionate about a practice and know professionals who could deliver a workshop, go, make happen, ask for more as many times as you can get. Make your time worth it here!” Gabriele, MA Movement: Directing & Teaching
"I'm so glad I responded to the ideas from my class mates (MA Movement) to put on some extra activities. We organised a Chekov workshop for all PG students and Jake / The SU were more than happy to support our request. It was a team effort from all, enabling us to mix across the PG cohort and spend time in the studio with a specialist teacher. I'm looking forward to organising more events like this with the support of the SU. It was such a rich evening of shared practice, only a fool would miss out on this opportunity. Go on...... APPLY NOW!" Jodie, MA Movement: Directing & Teaching
So get your applications in! We can't wait to hear your ideas and see what you do!
