The Bloomsbury Festival is an annual celebration of the diverse communities that live and work in the Bloomsbury area.
UCL hosted a hub for the festival in 2016 and 2017 and it has been a fantastic opportunity for UCL staff and students to engage with communities in the Bloomsbury area.
In 2016, UCL Culture supported 14 research teams to set up stalls and activities across campus with the theme of “Language”. We discussed topics ranging from using baking to tell stories about dementia, speaking to cephalopods and the language of data. The campus was host to dance troupes, theatre companies and artists, as hundreds of attendees arrived to find out more about the work going on at UCL.
UCL Culture is looking forward to again hosting a hub in 2017, working on the theme of “Independence”. For more information, sign up to the UCL Culture mailing list and keep an eye on the Bloomsbury Festival website.
