Transition – Preston/Kaunas

On Wednesday UCLan travel bursary students arrived in Kaunas, Lithuania for a week-long research project based around the theme of ‘transition’. Inspired by the contrasts and comparisons between the two distinct locales, both students and staff will engage with a range of activities in collaboration with Vytautas Magnus University and local artists from Kaunas.

Serving briefly as the country’s capital, Kaunas has a long and varied history as well as a being a hub for artists and photographers including the annual Kaunas Photo festival, which launched on Thursday.

Following orientation with the city, students and staff will research locations, peoples, and histories as part of a week long project culminating in research outputs and a publication.
