Scarlet attended the London Heats on Friday, 3rd March with her excellent speech on Bourgois’ sculpture, ‘Maman’.
We are delighted that Scarlet was able to participate and be a London finalist.
Dr Gabriele Finaldi praised Scarlet for her strong opening and for the element of drama n the way she presented. He commented on the strong sense of her personal response. "She took us on a journey of fascination and fear and he thought Scarlet's cultural references were very interesting. "
Scarlet Dean and Abigail D’Souza accompanied Miss Farmer to attend the finals in Cambridge on Friday 9th March. Although not a participant, the day was an excellent introduction to studying at Cambridge, and meeting some lecturers as well as hearing the finalists of the competition.
Congratulations to Scarlet for her great achievement and participation in this prestigious event.
Many thanks to the Art Department for all their efforts in supporting the students.
