INSPIRED! A presentation and discussion celebrating 7 years of partnership between the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL and the Faculty of Fine Art, Dhaka University
Led by Professor Susan Collins (Slade) and Professor Lala Rukh Selim (Dhaka University), the project was funded by the British Council as part of their INSPIRE (International strategic Partnership in Research and Education) initiative. Initially awarded for three years (2010-2013), the British Council extended the award until 2017.
The objective of the project was to stimulate collaboration between UK and Bangladeshi artists and academics, and explore the differences and similarities in the educational challenges faced in these two very different contexts.
The presentation and discussion will take place in the UCL Quad Events Space from 5pm on Friday 5th May 2017, and will be followed by a drinks reception. you are very welcome to attend either or both.
A corresponding public exhibition will be taking place in the UCL North Lodge on Gower Street from Tuesday 2nd- Friday 5th May 2017 from 10am-5pm, all welcome.
