Our wide range of activities are open to all Loughborough University and Loughborough University London postgraduate students.
These include our evening classes, music tuition, taster sessions and arts events, scholarships and grants. Our facilities, including our music practice rooms and the Martin Hall Exhibition Space, which is available for you to book in order to showcase your research. If you’re looking to orient yourself on our campus, meanwhile, you might enjoy our sculpture trail.
Research postgraduates can also benefit from collaboration with Radar, our contemporary arts programme. Radar commissions artists to produce work in response to and alongside academic research undertaken by Loughborough University academics, including postgraduate research students. Radar manages a public programme of events connected to its projects, which often feature postgraduate research students.
It may be possible to organise an event in collaboration with Radar to give a public-facing, artistic flavour to any events you’re hosting at the University. Radar is happy to collaborate with postgraduate research students on internal and external funding bids.
Radar can also provide advice on collaborating with artists, regardless of your academic discipline, so please feel free to get in touch with the team.
Black Heritage: Narratives of Diaspora
Calling all black and mixed-black heritage PGT & PGR students!
We are working with Dr Kerri Akiwowo (SDCA) on a special exhibition for Black History Month to celebrate and reflect the many diasporas of Black staff, PGT students, doctoral researchers and alumni. If you are from black or mixed-black heritage, you are invited to submit an object for the exhibition which reflects your diaspora in some way. This could be (but is not limited to) an item of clothing/textiles, a sculpture, jewellery or a painting/drawing/photograph. You will also need to write a short narrative about what the object means to you and how it relates to your diaspora.
The objects will be displayed in a specially-created display structure in the gallery space in Martin Hall with the exhibition running from 16 October to 10 November; objects will also be showcased online. If you are interested in taking part then please complete the online form by 10 September using the link below.
