Radar is Loughborough University's contemporary arts programme that develops new work inspired by academic research. Radar aims to stimulate participation and debate through its cross disciplinary working with artists and academics identifying research and using it as a stimulus for producing new artistic outputs that are presented across the campus and the town. Radar offers audiences the opportunity to engage with ideas being explored within each programme through commissions, films and critical debate.
Inspired by Loughborough University’s rich history of involving students in the physical development of the campus, artist Maria Pask has revisited this tradition by undertaking practical workshops in ceramics and woodwork with fine art students.
