The Creative Campus Initiative Exhibition
cultivating talent; celebrating excellence
In 2010, the Creative Campus Initiative commissioned over 100 new art and research-based creative responses works together with critical debate and learning and community projects. These took both direct and tangential inspiration from Olympic and Paralympic sports and the aspirations and ethos of London 2012.
Historical, cultural and socio-political issues raised by the Olympic and Paralympic Games were addressed by leading artists, students and academics alongside the creation of new learning materials and a programme of workshops with schools and local communities.
100m is a curated showcase of the best of these projects. The selected work displays the high quality of practice-led research and the distinctive strength of the arts and creative practice in South East higher education.
100m represents a series of individual and collaborative responses to the subject matter, but is also a reflection of the Creative Campus Initiative's framework - a pioneering attempt to link creative practices across discipline, media, geography and experience through a shared subject matter.
The theme of the Olympic Games, and with it the broad category of "Art and Sport", offered themselves up as rich inspiration, acting as points of departure for making work and also meeting points for collaboration - common markers that simultaneously connect through shared ideas and galvanise debate.
The Creative Campus Initiative Exhibition has been curated by Rose Lejeune.
