“The second in our Making The Difference strand of online talks: Join our Factory technician Fi, who has been working on the Filwood Fantastic community-led design and skills programme, in conversation with local artists and designers as they discuss the intersection of community improvement, community action and collaborative design. We hear from collaborative designer and all-round sustainability hero Lisa Cole about her locally-focused project Show Some Love designed to tackle waste on Stapleton Road by inspiring local pride, and from conceptual artist and lifelong proud Bristolian Claudia Collins about her latest lockdown projects ‘Knowle West beaches’ and ‘Kindness rocks’, aimed at bringing creativity and community spirit to her local streets in a time of uncertainty and isolation. Tune in to find out more about these unique and inspiring projects, and follow our discussion around ways in which we can continue and evolve the process of designing and working closely with communities in today’s socially distant times.”
On the 24th January 2019, the Visual Culture Research Group hosted a Postgraduate Colloquium at Arnolfini on the theme ‘Bodies, Discourses and Representations’. The Colloquium was organised by Dr Michela Prevedello (Programme Support Assistant for postgraduate students and member of the VCRG). MA and PhD UWE students across Art & Design and Film & Journalism programmes were invited to present their work at the event. The day ran from 10-4pm and thirteen students took part in the Colloquium, presenting work across a range of disciplines. Presentations were split into three panels and these were chaired by UWE students who introduced the speakers and ran a Q&A session. Following the Colloquium, students will be encouraged to publish their papers in a postgraduate peer-reviewed journal.
