Universities Engagement

We have been working closely with the University of East Anglia and the Norwich University of Arts across multiple projects. These university students and their tutors have not only found great value in engaging with what the Broads can offer to them, but the Water, Mills and Marshes partnership has come to rely on the talent and creative work that these students deliver year after year.

Here are a couple stand out examples of how we’ve been working with local University Students:

Heritage iTeams – Digital Ted

In 2019, we approached UEA’s Heritage iTeams programme to help come up with some creative out-of-the-box thinking about our Digital Ted project, which is planned to digitise a small number of the famed Norfolk Naturalist, Ted Ellis’ personal journals.

A multitalented team of postgraduate students from UEA and NUA came together on a weekly basis to develop a new plan to bring the life and legacy of Ted Ellis back for a new audience and generation. We’re excited about what the team has come up with and will be sharing updates as the project progresses over the coming years.
