Art is life
The Royal College of Art holds a dear place in my heart and I am honoured to be counted as an alumni. Art is life. And yet, art and culture seem to come last in today’s new world. This is what makes the Royal College of Art so important to me. It brings us together. It pushes us to go further. It encourages us to be our best. Most importantly, it brings hope.
