University Centre’s Fine Art to Feature on BBC North West Tonight

Blackburn University Centre appeared on BBC North West Tonight’s feature about how the Arts industry has been impacted by COVID-19.

The BBC feature includes an interview with Lecturer in Fine Art Steven Baldwin, as well as conversations with BA (Hons) Fine Art students Susan Brazendale, Christian Bell and Lydia McCaig.

Both Susan and Christian have been instrumental in supporting the College’s Digital Creative Arts Show and are going on to apply for the Creative Accelerator, a six-month programme which is designed to help new creatives into tutoring and mentoring opportunities.

Lydia, who achieved a first-class Fine Art Degree, is focusing on her Kick Down the Barriers online project led by Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery.

Abby Jones conducted the socially distanced interviews on behalf of the BBC at the Prism Gallery in Blackburn, which is a gallery space where students can exhibit their work.

The College appeared alongside Liverpool Philharmonic, the Tate Gallery and a Theatre Production group during the feature.
