Slade School of Fine Art


Slade Archive logo

The Slade has an extensive archive which includes papers, photographs, class lists, student records and artefacts dating throughout the school’s history at UCL. Together with materials held in UCL Records Office, UCL Library Special Collections and UCL Art Museum, the archive collection contains rich evidence of the time artists have spent at the Slade. However much of the archive is difficult to access. Through an initial collaboration with UCL Centre for Digital Humanities we have begun activating this invaluable collection, exploring ways in which this underused resource can be made more accessible and generate new knowledge – through research, online resources, public events and publications.
