Wimbledon wins bid to work on Indian projectWimbledon College of Art and Design will collaborate on a new project examining how new media is used in contemporary Indian and British performance practice.
The UAL college won the bid to work with the University of Hyderabad on the Scenography in a Digital Age project.
Dean of Wimbledon College Simon Betts explained to Arts London News that the project will examine what effect new media could have “on the visual and spatial constructs working within and between our respective cultures”.
Wimbledon College was the only visual performing arts project accepted on to the scheme.
A team including Betts and the course director of MA Digital Theater Douglas O’Connell is being put together to work alongside a group from the Indian university.
The Wimbledon team will work both in Hyderabad as well as on their own campus, and a series of exchange visits will start this September.
