Alex Barasch (Arts Officer):
I’m Alex, a second year biologist and this year’s Arts Officer. Essentially, it’s my job to improve access to and awareness of relevant events both here at Hilda’s and city-wide— there are a lot of great opportunities around Oxford, and I want anyone with an interest in the arts to have the resources and encouragement they need to get involved! Beginning in Michaelmas, I’ll be arranging regular outings to concerts, plays, and exhibitions as well as maintaining a calendar here on the JCR website and a weekly newsletter so you always know what’s on. Within college, I’ll oversee Arts Week in Trinity Term and coordinate with our societies to put together open mics, comedy nights, and other events year-round leading up to that.
I’m involved in the arts at a college and university level, so if you’re looking for advice on how to get started or have a project of your own that you’d like to pursue, feel free to contact me any time!
