As part of a programme of events and celebrations to mark their centenary, The King’s Building (KB) campus and College of Science and Engineering (CSE) provided funding to commission a permanent work of art to mark the campus’ milestone. Following the University Commissioning Guidelines process in 2019 the artist Katie Paterson was chosen to produce a new artwork for KB. Katie is a graduate of ECA and has been an honorary fellow of the University since 2013. The work she proposed takes the form of a series of Ideas - short haiku like three-lined sentences cut in metal.

This project will result in educational resources and lesson plans which incorporate object-based learning initiatives using instruments from the Musical Instrument Collection. The lessons and resources do not require in-depth knowledge of music or musical instruments in order to be appealing to schools that may not offer music in their schools, in particular schools which fall into the Widening Participation umbrella. Each lesson plan align with the Curriculum for Excellence, incorporating music into a wide range of topics so that these lessons can be used in an interdisciplinary way.

The University of Edinburgh research infrastructure has been following a plan to move from a “big bang” 5 year large scale investment cycle to an annual rolling replacement cycle.

An aim of this approach is to minimise disruption to research activities (ie removing regular wholesale replacement of the compete infrastructure – which causes considerable disruption due to the large scale changes involved and the concentration of work on the system and change into a single period.
