The Scholarship was established in 2001 and was named after the late singer and musician Kirsty MacColl.  At its inaugruation, the Head of the Centre for Urban and Community Research at Goldsmiths said the competitive MA Scholarship was created to mark MacColl’s “dedication to urban life and London”, and in recognition of her life’s work.

The programme offers working photographers, visual artists and media practitioners space to reflect critically on their practice.  It also offers those with a background in sociology, urban and cultural geography, cultural studies or anthropology the opportunity to combine visual forms of representation with standard forms of research techniques in investigating urban life and the physical environments of the city.
