Past, Present & Future at London College of Communication
Tuesday 8 March 2016
London College of Communication, Elephant & Castle, London.
On Tuesday 8 March, over 80 alumni from the 60s, 70s and 80s turned up for an exclusive event celebrating the rich history of London College of Communication, as well as a look to the exciting future that lies ahead for the College, including the regeneration of Elephant & Castle.
Many of the guests had lost touch with LCC and the Alumni Association over the years, and were invited (by request of the alumni team) by old classmates and colleagues as a way for UAL to get back in contact with these graduates, and to add them to the alumni database.
During the event, the archives & special collections team opened their doors to alumni to look around their unique and diverse archival materials. Many guests also kindly donated material to the archives, including images and college catalogues from their time at the London College of Printing, as it was then known. Guests were also given guided tours of the Imprint exhibition, which explores the development of the College at its current site in Elephant and Castle from 1964 to the present day.
Natalie Brett, Pro Vice-Chancellor & Head of College spoke about the importance of the College’s history and heritage, as well as giving an update on what it’s like to be a student at LCC today. This was followed by a presentation from Artur Carulla, one of the architects charged with creating the new College building which will be a part of the massive changes that are happening in Elephant & Castle.
The event continued on into the evening with drinks and reminiscing with old classmates and new friends.
