Safety and Security

Maslow’s theory defines the hierarchy of human needs by the following terms: Physiological needs, Safety, Sense of Belonging and Love, Self Esteem, Self-Actualization. Physical Safety is the second basic need of human. However it is not fully guaranteed to the people today. This society is becoming more dangerous with dreadful crimes and risk ignorance. Moreover, the big issues of this year are leakage of private information and the ferry disaster that simply shows our safety situations still in trouble. This year, the 4th CCDC seeks for design ideas that provide solutions for needs of safety as well as physical and emotional security

Last chance to take part in our RA Late!

We are teaming up once again with the Royal Academy to create a UAL-tastic Friday Late event in October, this time celebrating the photographic work of Dennis Hopper. Some UAL students have already gotten in their submissions for workshops, installations and happenings, but we’d like a few more of you to take part. This is a great opportunity to showcase your work, engage with a wider audience and GET PAID to work with the Royal Academy! (hello, CV highlight…) In particular, we’re looking for photographers, filmmakers and performers to get involved. Submit by the end of the week, here’s some info:

Photo fans, create a photographic workshop:

We’re looking for a photographer to create and lead an interactive workshop inspired by the Dennis Hopper photography exhibition to take place throughout the RA Late event.

The workshop should be hands on and actively take participants through a process that engages with photography and/or photographic imagery. It should include some kind of physical ‘take-away’ element at the end and be able to accommodate a minimum of 10 people at a time.

The workshop should be inspired by black and white photography or images, and engage with the spirit and style of the 60s. Concepts to think about include: documentary photography, 60s fashion and music, film icons, pop art, hippy culture, urban landscape, Easy Rider, American culture and the Civil Rights Movement.

Filmmakers, show your work:

We’re looking for original short films to be exhibited in a dedicated screening room during the RA Late event.  

The brief for the content of the films is open, but they must be black and white and no more than 3 minutes long.

Performers, express yourselves!

The radical social changes that occurred in the 60s led to the performance art movement. ‘Happenings’ was the term art critics gave to ad-hoc performances or time-based events.

As part of the RA Late event we’re going to be staging a series of ‘Happenings’ throughout the galleries and are looking for stand-out performances of all disciplines.

These ‘happenings’ could be music, monologues, poetry, performance art, your manifesto, a chance to get on the soap-box, a pitch, a demonstration, a conversation or interview, a dance or a 30min silent meditation.

They can be performed on your own or in small groups, and include your own props. When submitting your ideas please tell us how long you envisage your performance lasting.

Submit your proposal by midnight on Sunday 27 July!
