*The Other MA (TOMA) is a 12-month artist-run education model based in Southend-on-Sea. TOMA is currently the only postgraduate level art programme in Essex after all others were stopped by their host Universities. It was set up in 2015 by artist Emma Edmondson, in partnership with Metal, to offer affordable, accessible contemporary art education outside of the traditional institution.
