TED is pleased to announce that Lucy Siegle will host our sustainable film night on Thursday 7th of March in the Lecture Theatre at Chelsea College of Art & Design. The event will be part of Green Week at UAL highlighting the sustainability action and theory across colleges with events ranging from lectures, workshops and film screenings.
Lucy is an established journalist appearing on BBC’s ‘The One Show’, author of ‘To Die For’ and journalist in environmental issues for The Observer magazine. As a sustainable design activist she is also part of many initiatives ranging from the Green Carpet Challenge, to her latest Green Cut project, which she will present on the night.
At TED we have noticed how more and more students are creating films to communicate their projects during their course program and final Graduate Shows, and there is a missing link to share these on a platform a shared Vimeo platform across UAL. The Film Vert night intends to demonstrate how film can communicate sustainable design. Film Vert is a simple context that brings together research and teaching staff with students for an evening, to explore sustainable design.
The TED’s TEN will be the framework of the night, with films including TED and TFRC researcher’s interviews and projects, student projects and degree shows, activism, sustainable materials and inspiring short cuts. The evening aims to create awareness for the fashion and textiles students about research at UAL, the international context, and to encourage participation in filmmaking.
