It is a great pleasure to announce that the Durham University Marketing and Communications Office was shortlisted for its coverage of the World Machine at Durham Lumiere 2015, for the Chartered Institute of Public Relations PRide Awards North East. At the Award the team won silver in its category. Karen Frost (Marketing and Communications – Student Experience), Greg Robson (Physics) and Kirsten Swanston (Development and Alumni Relations Office) received the award on behalf of the University. The award recognises the collaboration between departments and units, researchers and the artistic team behind the projection (headed by Ross Ashton), working with the public, undergraduates, research students, academic and support staff. A really fantastic achievement and a great experience of which to have been part!
The final, and beautiful, version of The World Machine, by Ross Ashton, with Isobel Waller-Bridge and John del Nero. Testament to a great collaboration, creativity, and a fantastic location.
