ArtsEd was officially 100 years old in 2019!
Throughout 2019/20 we have celebrated this milestone with some of our most successful alumni in a series of videos recently published on our new YouTube channel.
We have now released all of our videos, the final one being a conversation with star of stage and screen, Lashana Lynch!
Lashana will soon appear on cinema screens as Agent Nomi in the new James Bond movie: No Time To Die.
In her centenary video she shares her ArtsEd experience and how training on our Acting course influenced her brilliant career.
On the 100 years of ArtsEd celebrations, Chris Hocking, Principal, said:
“In 2019 we began what we thought would be a year of centenary celebrations marking 100 years since Grace Cone founded her school, which would merge with Olive Ripman’s to form the Cone Ripman School, subsequently named Arts Educational Schools. 2020 proved to be a year like no other, however we’ve recently released our video series, 100 Years in 100 Seconds featuring some of our most successful alumni. We’re thrilled to share our last video, which rounds off our celebrations in spectacular fashion – Lashana Lynch discussing her ArtsEd experience and how our Acting course has influenced her brilliant career. We recently took ownership of our brand new building and will officially launch its studios, classrooms and rehearsal spaces in Spring 2021. We’re already looking ahead and preparing for the next 100 years of world-leading performing arts training!”
