We are pleased to inform you that four projects out of the original nine from the University of Portsmouth are continuing despite the end of Creative Campus Initiative due to funding cuts. The four projects are New Creatives 2011, Visual Libraries, The Order of Things 17 and lastly Mapping of Spaces and Sensory Space.
A summary of each project is below:
New Creatives 2011 (led by Denise Callender and Jacqui Mair). Following on from the success of the New Creatives exhibition earlier this year, New Creatives 2011 will again showcase and exhibit creative works by students of six local FE and sixth form colleges (Highbury, South Downs, St Vincent, Portsmouth, Fareham and Havant). The theme is ‘Legacy’ and the exhibition will take place in SPACE and Eldon Gallery from 17 January until 11 February 2011. The creative works will be in a variety of media, for example, visual art, music and sound, design, 3D sculpture, media and film, performing arts and theatre. Two artists, Joe Ross and Joanne Hummell-Newell have been commissioned by UOP to work with the six colleges on the project. http://newcreatives2010.blogspot.com/
Visual Libraries (led by Maureen O’Neill and Claire Sambrook) is a collaborative visual project that examines the creative use of sketchbooks in public libraries and educational institutions that recently went global with a successful visit to the USA and India, see full story here http://www.port.ac.uk/aboutus/newsandevents/news/title,118359,en.html. The Visual Libraries project is expanding regionally by collaborating with New Creatives 2011 to extend its reach within the community. Artist Sue Meredith will be assisting Maureen and Claire in developing the project in colleges for the New Creatives 2011 collaboration and beyond.
Mapping of Spaces and Sensory Space (led by Belinda Mitchell). The project will build on the body of work developed through the sensory experience of space and through the creative campus project, Training sites: Mapping practice spaces of the Olympics. Mottisfont Abbey will be used as a site for investigation by students studying on MA’s in Interior Design, Sustainable Architecture, MSc in Historic Building Conservation and Diploma Students in Landscape Design. The project will use an inter-disciplinary language and attitudes towards ‘reading’ a site or building and the outputs will be to construct a grammar of notation and choreographic score that describes and activates the moving body in the built environment. The work will be exhibited at the School of Architecture end of year show in 2011, at Mottisfont Abbey and in London as part of the Free Range exhibition.
The Order of Things 17 (led by Jon Adams) will continue as two distinct projects: Part 1: Dysarticulate will see Flag events in a wider context throughout the South within councils, schools, leading galleries and organisations taking part in 2011 and with worldwide partners in 2012. Part 2: Dysconformity, a sound and geological exploration working with the SEES and British Geological Survey running through until the Olympic Games 2012. Both projects will be documented and feature on the BBC Big screens along with this years ‘Flags’ events. To see what happened this year click here http://www.disabilityarts.org/Jon-Adams
