Market Town shortlisted for award

 

We are delighted to announce we have been shortlisted in the Excellence and Innovation in the Arts category for Radar's Market Town project, which brought academics and artists together to consider the future viability and sustainability of Loughborough town centre.  

One of the initiatives undertaken as part of the project involved the University’s lecturers and the town’s market traders swapping places; stalls were set up on the campus and the University’s academics delivered their lectures in the town centre.

Nick Slater, Director of LU Arts, which was instrumental in the delivery of the project, said: “Members of the public could attend lectures, allowing them to engage in a new way with the University, and the market traders were able to access new customers on the University’s campus. It brought the town and the University together in a very innovative way.

“Overall Market Town was a great success, and I am delighted that it has been recognised with a Times Higher Education Award nomination.”
