Šilainiai micro district – photo walk

Initiated by artist Evelina Šimkutė, the Šilainiai Project is a collaborative endeavour based around the micro district of Šilainiai on the outskirts of Kaunas. On Friday Evelina led UCLan students on a photo walk around the area, which is home to a community of over 50,000 people over 7 districts.

Built in the 80’s, the district was one of the last large scale urban settlements before the break up of the former Soviet Union. As Evelina recalls, “I grew up in Šilainiai. My family was one of the first settlers and I still remember the smell of the freshly painted floor.”

Students spent the day engaging and interpreting the area as part of their ongoing research into the city and its environs.

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.

Six Uclan students; Alistair Grimley, Molly Albin, Sam Jackson, Laura Creighton, Bryony Jones and Adam Hewitt, are on a field trip to China, stopping in Baoding and Beijing.

With a range of specialisms including photographers, film makers and one journalist, the crew are in the process of creating a film featuring the thoughts and aspirations of the students at UCLan’s school in Hebei.

The team spent 4 days in Baoding, situated in the Hebei province, where they connected with the media students at the University there.

The documentary showcases the mutually beneficial link between the two universities, and demonstrates UCLan’s impressive international standing.

The first full day in Baoding saw introductions between the two sets of students, with individual work being discussed and shared.

2 HBU students, Yolanda and Optimus, were interviewed, and both proved to be strong characters, excited to visit the UK in the near future.

The gang were also treated to a tour of the campus, including a pretty impressive university library, and got to see the facilities available to the students there, from TV studios to Animation rooms and music facilities.

The next day involved a visit to the beautiful Lotus gardens where we heard Selena and Annie’s side of the story, both of whom seem to enjoy Hebei, but are also thankful for the opportunity to visit the UK, and see more of the world.

Since moving onto Beijing, Adam and Bryony have been busy editing the footage into a short film, while they and the other students work on their individual personal projects, working in their own specialisms, as well as helping each other to create multi-disciplinary projects.

The trip is subsidised as part of the Travel Bursary scheme at UCLan, which has allowed students across a range of courses to take advantage of the international links the University has cultivated, regardless of financial situation.
