I am currently a student in my final year, studying the History of Art and Design. As a mixed Asian British student, I have become consumed with ideas of how to work on the decolonisation of our curriculum. This is a result of the Euro-centric Western canon that dominates the art history timeline. This collective not only offers a safe, and engaging space for me to speak about my frustrations with the current curriculum, but also a space to expand my knowledge on other areas of the School of Humanities where these Euro-centric narratives are present.  To untie these Western binds that dictate the art history timeline, will mean we can start to discover an incredible spectrum of representation and perspectives in the arts. – Emily Southcotte
