Call for Participants

This is a call for student participants to be involved in an exciting interdisciplinary, transmedia project which seeks to explore and develop new approaches to collaborative teaching and learning. co_LAB represents a great opportunity to work on a project that blurs the boundaries of specialised skill and knowledge learning. This project will also offer you the chance to meet and collaborate with staff and students studying across a number of schools within the College of Arts.

co_LAB is an intensive programme taking place between 12-16 May, 2014, featuring additional online content and a number of practice and skills workshops. We are looking for enthusiastic participants made up from current Level 2 students from across Media Production, Audio Production, Film and Television, Contemporary Lens Media, and Interactive Design.

What’s in it for you:

  • Networking – discover other talented artists and practitioners
  • Shape the way you learn by having more autonomy in curriculum development
  • Develop a new outlook on your role within the education system
  • Discover new approaches to conceptual and practical production
  • Share your voice on challenging debates
  • Get your work exhibited at a public-facing event
  • Counts as extra-curricular activity for the ‘Lincoln Award’
  • So, you’re interested… what’s next?

If you would like to be considered please send a brief statement (about 500 words should do it) outlining why we should pick you, what your key skills are, what would you bring to the project and what you expect to get out of the experience.

We also require a short CV (max 1-page) highlighting any experience you have in collaborative working, any production skills you have, previous projects you have been involved with and any extra-curricular activities you have undertaken.

We will be holding an informal briefing on the project for all who may wish to take part but want to find out a little more information on Wednesday 19th March, 15.00 in room MC2113B (2nd floor MHT).

Promotion media en-route!

Media promoting the project have just been sent to the printers. Keep an eye out for the posters and grab a postcard when they arrive!
