On Wednesday, Sixth Form Art History students were treated to a fascinating lunchtime talk from Old Dolphin Alice Fraser who spoke on her role as Project Coordinator at the V&A and her career path since leaving Godolphin.
Having loved every minute of reading, researching and writing at university, Alice explained how she initially looked for work using these skills before becoming Project Manager at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Working with architects, designers, curators, restorers, educators and finance departments, Alice oversaw the complete redesign and refurbishment of the Raphael Court which houses the world famous Raphael Cartoons.
Sixth Form students are now looking forward to the reopening, and watching the accompanying BBC programme in February, before visiting Raphael’s works in the Vatican on our school visit in March. We wish Alice good luck with her new project at the British Museum.
