The latest edition of Goldlink, your alumni magazine, is now available online and we’ve also sent a copy to over 50,000 alumni based all over the world. If you haven’t received yours, get in touch and we will forward a copy on to you.
This edition of the magazine includes an interview with comedian Shazia Mirza (PGCE in Education with Science, 1996). Shazia has recently toured her latest show titled: The Kardashians Made Me Do It. She will be reprising it at The Edinburgh Festival from 4 to 15 August this year. We met with Shazia to find out more about the show and how she developed a career as a comic after coming to Goldsmiths to become a teacher.
We also caught up again with Maths and Statistics alumna Eska, following her Mercury Prize nomination earlier this year. Eska is both an alumna and former staff member having previously led the Goldsmiths Vocal Ensemble.
Simon Deacon interviewed Popular Music alumna Rosie Lowe, who performed at the new Bestival at Goldsmiths event on Friday and released her debut album, Control, earlier this year.
Mark Aitken from the Department of Media and Communications shares the story of the documentary he made about a self-run asylum in the feature, Dead When I Got Here, which will be screened at an event for Goldsmiths alumni in October this year.
We hope you enjoy reading this issue and if you have any suggestions or feedback please get in touch.
