Norwich School has for many years been proud to host on site a number of organisations including the Norfolk Cambridge Society and the Royal Geographical Society in their excellent series of public lectures delivered by experienced and engaging experts, designed to enhance the school’s intellectual offering to its community of pupils, alumni, friends and parents as well as to the wider city of Norwich.
On 11th May we were delighted to host in the school’s Blake Studio the long-established and well-known Norfolk Contemporary Arts Society (NCAS) as part of their events programme.
An appreciative and knowledgeable audience enjoyed a talk entitled “Art of the Intangible” given by Peter Higgins RDI and Lol Sargent RCA. They covered much ground in a retrospective of their long and productive careers, referencing early influences, trends in digital creativity spanning the period from the early 1980s to the current day, as well as their experiences collaborating on exciting projects such as the multi-award winning ‘Playzone’ at the Millennium Dome. They concluded their lecture sharing details of their current work in lockdown and future trends in the digital creative world. Their slide show was packed with a stunning selection of eye-catching videos of artistic and innovative art installations taken from exhibitions round the world, including such seminal works such as Raphael’s Pendulum.
We were indeed fortunate to have such accomplished artists and creative minds on site and we look forward to further collaborations with NCAS over time.
