The University’s Curate the Campus arts project sees artists staging creative projects in unusual locations across campus.
The annual project from Live at LICA includes a dawn chorus concert from David Attenborough’s sound recordist Chris Watson. For Curate the Campus he will map the sounds of a woodland to create a dawn chorus concert.
There will also be a reading by well known poet Paul Muldoon, a guided sound-walk of the campus, a silent mobile disco, and a dance captured by pin-hole cameras.
The theme of this year’s Curate the Campus is the start of Lancaster University’s Quiet Period, when students work towards the summer exams and are busy revising and studying. Artists on the residency programme have been invited to produce work exploring silence, stillness, intimacy and memory.
The focal centre of Curate the Campus is the Peter Scott Gallery, which will be a base for the public and the artists involved. The majority of events are free and all are welcome.
