UAL Chairs Project 2013 to 2016
For 3 academic years (2013-2016), University of the Arts London appointed 13 University Chairs to work across our colleges and subject disciplines.
During the 3 years the Chairs were in post they contributed over 200 separate events and activities. They have worked with students and staff on academic activities outside the normal curriculum and disciplines of the university and contributed to high profile public lectures and exhibitions, master-classes, workshops, residencies, trips and exclusive performances – all together bringing a new audience of approximately 80,000 people to UAL through their activities.
The above film was created by Gareth Johnson, an alumni of our LCC MA Documentary Film course as a montage representation of the 3 year project.
Gareth is working on a longer documentary film about our student experiences from the Chair Project - this is due to be released in November 2016.
