2017 marks Anglia Ruskin’s 25th anniversary as a University, but its history dates back nearly 160 years, to the foundation of the Cambridge School of Art. The art school was the creation of a small group of Cambridge University dons and prominent townspeople, and was opened by John Ruskin in October 1858. In this illustrated talk, Tony Kirby will trace how this evolved into today’s Anglia Ruskin. Find out more: http://www.anglia.ac.uk/community-engagement/open-cambridge-aru-since-1858
