Last week Jac and I met with Leanne Manfredi (Programme Manager: Higher Education and Creative Industries) at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
Jac and I talked about the Create Curate Collaborate! project and our plans for bringing students to the V&A to inspire their creative writing. The focus is on students as researchers, and considering the process rather than the end product. Students will have their own mapping of the V&A to work from, but will then be brought back together at different points, some of the ‘learning spaces’ that might work are:
- Sandino, Linda, ‘News from the past: Oral History at the V&A’, V&A Online Journal, Issue No.2 (Autumn 2009) -
“meaning and understanding of the V&A through the personal stories of its curators”
“a collaboration between comedy promoters One Green Firework, music promoters Duel in the Deep and UCL, London’s Global University”
A recent event was held at the V&A on Craft: http://brightclub.wordpress.com/2011/09/08/bright-club-craft-27th-september-at-the-v-and-a/
“a creative space for exploring innovative approaches to the study of design and objects”
Actions: planning our visit with the students for early February, and we need to book a room for end of May now!!
