Welcome to the Visual Arts Society page, where we will do our best to explain what the society is all about.
The Visual Arts society is a society with the aim of primarily bringing together fans of anime and manga, but also other mediums such as cartoons and film to enjoy and discuss them as a group. We welcome all, be it the most hardcore Otaku to those who have no idea what anime is, but are interested regardless.
We run weekly events, which anyone is welcome to come to. For paid members of the society we also do external trips, such as conventions and also cinema trips/meals out/whatever else we get up to.
Monday: On Monday, we get together for the weekly Anime Monday where we decide through polls on our Facebook page what shows to watch beforehand through popular vote, and then watch them as a group. The event is held at 6pm until nine, where we usually watch about six episodes. This is usually followed by a trip to the pub afterwards for drinks and food.
Wednesday: On Wednesdays, we have a different event each week, ranging from Quiz nights to Retro Nights where we put on classic shows.
Cinema Trips: Luckily, the City campus is located right next to the Showroom, a cinema which often airs anime movies, such as Your Name and A Silent Voice in the past year. If any anime movies are being shown, we will usually organize an event to go see it. Similarly, we also organize trips for other films across various cinemas in town including Cineworld and The Light, if we find that people are interested.
Quiz Nights: We host a quiz night irregularly, but usually once a moth. The Quiz can either be on a specific subject e.g. Anime, or general geeky stuff. If you fancy testing your knowledge against your fellow members be sure to come down and compete for a prize.
We have an offical discord server for everyone to socialise and play games. We also post announcements and news for anyone who doesn't use social media that much. Click the following invite link to join! https://discord.gg/nxUBn7R
