NUA Launches Anniversary Building Projection

Norwich University of the Arts is celebrating its 170th anniversary with a year-long programme of special events. The programme launches this week with a breath taking high-definition outdoor digital projection of art, design, media and architecture work by students past and present.

Work includes animation, film and moving image, fashion, sculpture, VFX and much more. All work has been hand-picked to show the City and its many visitors just how fantastic our creative talent is.

The screening will also feature images from NUA’s archive and a brand new N170 ident for moving image, created by graduate Billy Thorpe. This is a thrilling opportunity to see our students’ amazing work, projected outside our buildings during the evenings over the next two weeks. The screen is located on St Georges Street and will be switched on from 5pm until 10pm each evening from Monday 16 February until Sunday 1 March.

Neil Powell, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Academic), says: “We’ve been delighted with the response so far, both the enjoyment expressed by the public and the excitement of the students and graduates whose work has been selected. The projection celebrates the excellence and diversity of the creative output of the University and contrasts with the exhibition of staff work currently on show inside the Gallery at NUA. This is one of our gifts to the city as part of our 170th anniversary celebrations – we encourage everyone to go and see it and with a new selection of work due to be introduced on Monday it will reward repeated viewing.”

The full running order and list of credits will be available to view on the NUA website at www.nua.ac.uk/visit/n170/digitalprojection
