An internationally recognised theatre designer will be guest master for this year’s Museum & Exhibition Design Master Class 2005, to be held at the Lincoln School of Architecture.


William Dudley will deliver the master class entitled ‘Bringing Theatre to Life’, which aims to involve the creation of new exhibition experiences and visitor attraction concepts for sites on the South Bank in London.


The master class will also demonstrate ways in which theatre may be incorporated into everyday life and will start with a welcome talk by the Head of the Lincoln School of Architecture, Professor John Chilton.


The master class is relevant to all spatial, graphic, media, 3D and multidisciplinary designers and promises to be an exciting challenge for all students. It offers an opportunity to work with creative people who are passionate about what they do and eager to learn from experience.


The two-day event will include illustrated talks and face-to-face tuition with William, as well as multidisciplinary team working and support from course tutors. Full use of the university’s superb drama studio will also be available.

William’s extensive West End credits include the currently showing opera The Woman in White,’ ‘The Breath of Life’ starring Judi Dench, and 'Hitchcock Blonde', for which he was awarded the Laurence Olivier Award 2004 for Best Set Design.

There are 20 places available on the master class which are open to any students on pre-degree Foundation Art and Design courses.

The event will take place on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th February 2005, and those wishing to attend should contact Geoff Matthews on (01522) 837139 or email GMatthews@lincoln.ac.uk for more information or to book a place.
