October continues to see ACM celebrate Black History Month, working alongside our African & Caribbean Society to bring a jam-packed programme of virtual events to the community – including masterclasses, industry panels, Netflix Watch Parties and more! We also launched our new Collab app, recognised work from students, alumni and tutors across a range of projects, and have plenty planned for Half Term with Instagram Live sessions and other virtual events still to come! Remember to join us for another Digital Open Day in November if you want to learn more about ACM.

Black History Month

With help from our African and Caribbean Society, ACM continues to deliver an exciting online programme to celebrate Black History Month. Whilst Black History Month remains an important time in our calendars to celebrate and learn from, we believe that black culture and history should be threaded throughout our education. Therefore, we look forward to continuing these important discussions and events throughout the year, as part of ACM’s curriculum. Learn more about Black History Month and explore upcoming virtual events!
