So, already on the first day at the InQbate centre and the event has had a considerable number of participants. One of the yesterdays highlights was Anna Dumitriu, artist in residence, who was here talking about some of her experiences at Brighton & Hove 'WHITE NIGHT' an event in Brighton that marked the end of British Summer Time in October this year.
Anna showed a video that illustrated some of the many diverse events that took place on that evening and also talked about her work and involvement within the local community. There was also a presentation from the Estate and Facilities Division in relation to a current project they are working on: EcoCampus. Great debate and discussion surrounded issues about recycling within office spaces, the collecting of rainwater and problems in relation to the heating of internal spaces.
Many good points and perspectives were hammered out.
John Walker from CCE, Deaf Studies Program gave a presentation on his Research within the deaf community, that was fascintating and gave an insight into his community outreach work and the issues faced by the deaf community. Had a good chat with John - very approachable chap.
Meanwhile, River Jones, organiser of the 'The Big Picture' event, has begun re-examining the space that has been created over the last couple of days, in order to facilitate a specific 'journey'. River will be working with other members of staff to create 'signposts' within the space, to lead visitors.
Amongst all this activity, I also had the chance to catch up with my favourite lecturer, Dr. Lucy Robinson to investigate further into SPLASH case study we are working with her on with regards to SPLASH and her BA/MA students. However, you won't that in here - that will be in the tech blog of SPLASH later in the week...
Enough of me talking - how about some visual:
