Congratulations to Maryam Bandukda on her Beacon bursary award!
Maryam Bandukda has been awarded a Beacon Bursary award for her project called Co-creating artful representations of blind people's experience at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
Maryam will develop her approach to co-creation and relationships with a literature review before recruiting Blind and partially sighted members of the community to share their experiences. The team will host a workshop to co-design a piece of art representing the participants' experience that will be further developed by an artist from the community and exhibited at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The bursaries are a competitive funding round, which aims to advance the practice and culture of public and community engagement within UCL. You can read in more detail about the projects and see a list of all this year's funded projects on the wesite.
