To celebrate World Book Day next Thursday (7th March) the School of Arts, English and Drama will be running a book exchange in the Martin Hall.
Simply show up at the Martin Hall Office on 1pm with a (preferably used) book of any genre that you really love, and that you are willing to part with, and you will gain a new book to read from others donations.
If you want to drop books off before this, they have a box in the Martin Hall PGR Office. It’s a great opportunity to have a spring clean of those cluttered book shelves and recycle some well-loved texts.
World Book Day is a registered charity on a mission to give every child and young person a book of their own. It’s also a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
Loughborough’s Art & Design School this month will be hosting a charity art exhibition showcasing and selling work produced during a collaborative project by students from Loughborough and Japan.
Tension is a postcard exhibition featuring work by students on each pathway of Loughborough University’s Art and Design Foundation Studies course – 3D Design, Fashion and Textiles, Fine Art and Visual Communication – and a visiting group of Curatorship and Fine Art students from Joshibi University of Art and Design in Tokyo. The students will work together to curate the exhibition.
All the postcards in the exhibition will be for sale, with proceeds going to a local children’s hospice charity, Rainbows.
Tension will be open to the public 10am-4pm, from Tuesday 26th February until Friday 1st March in the Fine Art Gallery, based in the School of the Arts, English and Drama, Loughborough University, Epinal Way, LE11 3TU.
