Preparing for London 2012
As we count down to the start of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, we all have to prepare for the fact that there is likely to be a noticeable impact on our day to day lives.
With a range of activities that simply must go ahead scheduled across our sites during the Olympic period, our commitment must be to ‘business as usual’.
To help you think about how the Games may affect you and what you can do to work around them, we have compiled an overview of the expected situation and possible mitigation strategies, now online at www.arts.ac.uk/olympics.
Before the Games begin we will publish a regular update on MyArts with news and important announcements about managing the impact of this great spectacle. Throughout the Games themselves, a daily update will also be published each morning on MyArts, giving details of any potential disruption to any of our sites.
But I don’t want to be unduly negative; even for those not usually interested in sports, the Games are unique and the atmosphere in London will be unlike anything most of us have experienced before. UAL staff, students and alumni have already contributed to London 2012 in a variety of ways, and you can find out more about their work on the UAL 2012 blog.
Whether you have tickets or will be watching from home, whether you love the Games or can’t wait for it all to be over, I wish you all a stress-free time during London 2012.
