The Intellect Prize in Theatre & Performance for Public Engagement

This year's Intellect Prize in Theatre & Performance for Public Engagement at the University of Plymouth has been awarded to Siobhan McKeown.

Siobhan Mckeown was awarded the Intellect Prize for her commitment to, and the extent of her, public engagement during her MRes in Theatre & Performance at the University of Plymouth (2009-10). This included a wide range of activity as part of the Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination's Bike Bloc project in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Bristol and Lille. Siobhan also organised the video documentation team for the Pigs of Today are the Hams of Tomorrow, a collaboration between Plymouth Arts Centre and the Marina Abramovic Institute for the Preservation of Performance Art, and made three films with the mythogeographic walking artist, Phil Smith, including one for a 360 degree screen which was projected in a giant dome in the centre of Plymouth. She is now undertaking an AHRC-funded doctoral programme at Queen Mary, University of London, focusing on activism and video editing.

Siobhan will be receiving £100 worth of Intellect books. Congratulations Siobhan!
