Welcome to QS Totally Arts Summit
Welcome to the inaugural QS Totally Arts Summit, a brand new event that QS is proud to be organizing in collaboration with Thailand’s Silpakorn University. Part art exhibition, part international leadership seminar, the QS Totally Arts Summit is a celebration of the creativity and resourcefulness of student artists and their mentors. The Summit also provides an opportunity for the leaders of art and design higher education to network and discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the institutions under their care. Together with colleagues from around the world, the Summit offers a chance to take a step back to reflect and strategize for the future of art and design education.
Through the QS Totally Arts Summit, QS aims to advance art and design education in the wider Asian region and beyond, particularly by encouraging international collaboration. We invite you to join us in Bangkok this October to be a part of this historic gathering.
About Silpakorn University
Silpakorn University was originally established as the School of Fine Arts under the Fine Arts Department.
The School gradually developed and was officially accorded a new status and name, Silpakorn University, on 12 October 1943. In the early phase of its development, only programs in painting and sculpture were offered by its inaugural faculty – the Faculty of Painting and Sculpture. Three more faculties were later established to accommodate the University’s growing academic interests, namely, architecture, archaeology, and decorative arts. These four areas of specialization formed the academic bases of the four faculties of the Wang ThaPhra Campus in Bangkok.
Now Silpakorn University is a fully comprehensive institution that offers degree programs at both undergraduate and graduate levels in all major fields of art and design, science and technology, health science, social sciences and humanities. It is also responsible for maintaining a Graduate School, Art Galleries, an Art and Culture Center, a Computer Center, a Research and Development Institute, and other facilities and functional services. In 1999, a new faculty, the Faculty of Music, was established for formal degree training in both theory and practice of western music, including classical, popular, jazz, and commercial music.
