Arts Volunteering 2021 – Hannah Smith
At the end of June, Shaun Pitt and Edwina McConville presented a certificate and cheque to Hannah Smith, who was nominated the best Art Foundation Year student in Warwickshire College for 2020-2021. Hannah showed her portfolio of fashion drawings, with items designed specifically for disabled people. In the autumn, Hannah will begin a course in fashion design at Central St Martins, which accepts very few students on this particular course.
Receiving the award Hannah said, “My fashion focuses on where disabled people fit in fashion, as there is certainly a lack of visibility for disabled people in the industry. I’ve wanted to go for Central St Martins for years and it’s a real dream for me. The bursary from the Arts Society will help me when I get there”.
