UAL achievements recognised in Universities Week 2012 publications
Universities Week 2012 took place from 30 April to 7 May this year and its accompanying publication, ‘Olympic and Paralympic Games: The Impact of Universities’, prominently features work from UAL.
Showcasing images of Central Saint Martins’ senior lecturer, Lin Cheung, with her Paralympic medals and featuring an overview of CSM MA Innovation Management’s collaboration with UK Sport and two Ghanaian universities, it recognises and celebrates ‘the contribution that universities make to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, as well as the wider sports industry in the UK’.
Alex Bulmer, a recent graduate of LCC’s MA Screenwriting course, is also mentioned for the two plays she is producing for the Cultural Olympiad with a collective of artists. You can read our interview with Alex here.
An accompanying report, ‘Supporting A UK Success Story: The Impact of University Research and Sport Development’, highlights CCW’s doctoral research bursary in the Role of Drawing, led by Stephen Farthing RA. Last year, we asked Stephen what personally excites him about this bursary. It also mentions a design partnership that took place back in 2006 between London College of Fashion, Loughborough University Rapid Manufacture Research Group and EOS GmbH Electro Optical Systems, resulting in the launch of the world’s first bespoke performance football boot ‘assassin’.
It is fantastic that the University of the Arts London’s achievements and collaborations are being recognised in this way, and congratulations to all individuals involved.
