En cirkusartist står på händerna

New academic year at Uniarts


The new academic year has started in earnest after an inspiring joint gathering for all co-workers and students.

Students and co-workers at Stockholm University of the Arts gathered today to kickstart the new semester. After a welcome speech from Pro-Vice-Chancellor Johan Scott, a series of inspiring presentations by former students followed.

On the picture above we see former Circus student Sunniva Byvard doing daring handstands. Here are a few more pictures from the event:
