UAL shortlisted for a Creative Cultural Project award
Podium is the further and higher education unit for the 2012 Games and it is UAL’s London 2012 progamme as a whole that has caught their attention. The university has ‘been proactively developing and undertaking various 2012 related, or inspired, activities’, Podium writes. It cites CSM students’ collaboration with the Academy of St Martins in the Fields, Musical Torch, and LCF students designing Leona Lewis’ gown when she performed at the Beijing handover ceremony in 2008 as shining examples.
Other projects shortlisted are The Arts University College at Bournemouth for Battle for the Winds, and Creative Campus Initiative Consortia for their arts-led programme that spans the south east of England.
The Podium Awards Evening will take place on 3 May at Forman’s Fish Island; which overlooks the Olympic Stadium. Good luck to all involved – students, staff and alumni – we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed!
