Café des Arts

Café des Arts is an event and workshop series that explores art, culture, music, and literature in relation to politics, community, identity, and the world outside our college walls. We believe that the arts are not simply relevant to our world and our lives, but are also influential, inclusive, and inspirational.

PhD student James speaks about the Ustinov Global Citizenship Programme and what the Café des Arts involves, as well as about an exciting art installation of a peace quilt.
