Academics and researchers: Opportunity to find out more about Radar

Researchers and academics are invited to an informal lunch on Wednesday 8 May to learn more about Radar. 

Radar is Loughborough University’s contemporary commissioning programme, which invites artists to make new work in collaboration with researchers across Loughborough’s two campuses. 

Radar works with artists and researchers to produce collaborative artistic commissions inspired by academic research. 

Radar staff can also provide guidance and/or contacts for academics wishing to work with artists as part of their research, and have knowledge of academic and arts funding. 

Recent Radar projects have seen collaborations with academics and researchers from the Department of Materials, Department of Geography, Social Sciences and the School of the Arts, English and Drama. Radar work with researchers from all disciplines, and across all career stages, including PGR students and ECR's. 

The lunch will also involve short, informal presentations. Reader in Human Geography, Dr Sarah Mills, who is currently working on a project with Radar, will talk about her experience of the process, and Radar Producer Laura Purseglove will give a short introduction to how we work. Radar staff will be on hand to talk with attendees about their specific projects.  

The buffet lunch will be served from 12:30pm-2pm in the LU Arts Office (Room 0.13, Martin Hall) and staff can drop by anytime during this period. Presentations will take place from 1:15pm-1:35pm.  

If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Laura at by Friday 3 May. If you would like to find out more about working with Radar then visit the 'About' section of Radar’s dedicated webpage.
