Body Brain Bingo
IntroductionBody Brain Bingo is an exciting and unusual yearlong project, testing ideas of performance and methods of collaboration. The project brings together researchers, artists and community groups to form cooperative partnerships. At the end of the project, the partnerships will demonstrate what they’ve developed, and we will reflect on methods and ideas of collaboration. The project itself is a collaboration between UCL Culture and ZU-UK (an award winning independent theatre and digital arts company based in East London and Rio de Janeiro).[[{"fid":"3765","view_mode":"xl","fields":{"format":"xl","field_file_image_alt_text[und][0][value]":"tiles.jpg","field_file_image_title_text[und][0][value]":"","field_caption_heading[und][0][title]":"","field_caption_heading[und][0][url]":"","field_caption[und][0][value]":"","field_caption[und][0][format]":"limited_html","field_float_left_right[und]":"none","field_file_image_decorative[und]":"0"},"type":"media","field_deltas":{"1":{"format":"xl","field_file_image_alt_text[und][0][value]":"tiles.jpg","field_file_image_title_text[und][0][value]":"","field_caption_heading[und][0][title]":"","field_caption_heading[und][0][url]":"","field_caption[und][0][value]":"","field_caption[und][0][format]":"limited_html","field_float_left_right[und]":"none","field_file_image_decorative[und]":"0"}},"link_text":null,"attributes":{"height":"1638","width":"2912","class":"media-element file-xl"}}]]Brain Body Bingo – what’s it all about?Brain Body Bingo is about building relationships, experimenting and performance. The project attempts to disrupt hierarchies and concepts of engagement by experimenting with different methods of performance and collaboration. By creating a cohort of researchers, artists and community groups, we will query what collaboration means, while at the same time testing performance methods as a means of engagement with research.The aims of the project are:To develop processes for engagement between non-academic communities in London, UCL researchers, and performance and theatre practitioners and networksTo establish new creative partnerships between UCL researchers in the School of Life and Medical Sciences, and beyond, UCL Culture, theatre and performance practitioners and London’s diverse communitiesTo develop and expand existing performance and engagement expertise within UCL’s research communityTo contribute to UCL Culture’s ‘Performance=Knowledge’ theme and programmingTo create a framework for engagement and performance collaborations at UCLUnderlying this, the project asks participants questions like “What does collaboration mean to you?”, “What are your positive and negative experiences of collaboration?” and “Is collaboration always worthwhile?”.[[{"fid":"3793","view_mode":"xl","fields":{"format":"xl","field_file_image_alt_text[und][0][value]":"postits.jpg","field_file_image_title_text[und][0][value]":"","field_caption_heading[und][0][title]":"","field_caption_heading[und][0][url]":"","field_caption[und][0][value]":"","field_caption[und][0][format]":"limited_html","field_float_left_right[und]":"none","field_file_image_decorative[und]":"0"},"type":"media","field_deltas":{"1":{"format":"xl","field_file_image_alt_text[und][0][value]":"postits.jpg","field_file_image_title_text[und][0][value]":"","field_caption_heading[und][0][title]":"","field_caption_heading[und][0][url]":"","field_caption[und][0][value]":"","field_caption[und][0][format]":"limited_html","field_float_left_right[und]":"none","field_file_image_decorative[und]":"0"}},"link_text":null,"attributes":{"height":"1836","width":"3264","class":"media-element file-xl"}}]]Upcoming events and activitiesThe cohort is currently being established and selected collaborations will be awarded small amounts of seed funding to develop further their ideas.

Ten months later, on 14 December 1918, 8.5 million women voted for the first time.Forty years before this, UCL became one of the first universities in England to admit women on equal terms with men.  “These events will give us an eye-opening insight into the barriers women have faced at UCL and in the wider world, and how far they were able to reach despite them. It is also an important opportunity to examine where equality is still to be achieved and learn from the past. I’m delighted that UCL is playing such an active role in celebrating this centenary year, and I think it will provoke a lot of debate about how far we have come and how far we still need to go."—UCL President & Provost Professor Michael Arthur Exhibitions that will run across the year include: Prize & Prejudice, an exhibition in the UCL Art Museum that shines a light on the women who won the coveted Slade Prize;  UCL Female Firsts, a series of contemporary art works honouring female academics ranging from leading Bletchley code-breaker Mavis Batey to the UK’s first female doctor Elizabeth Garrett Anderson; Disrupters and Innovators, an exhibition in the Octagon Gallery that celebrates the perseverance, originality and ingenuity of female students and staff at UCL in breaking down gender barriers; and Dangers and Delusions?
