The Creative Campus project that involved the Royal Holloway Drama and Theatre Department up for a 2012 Podium award.
‘The Creative Campus Initiative’ is an arts-led programme across thirteen higher education institutions in the south east. CCI has worked with schools, colleges, arts, community and disability organisations to deliver hundreds of cultural projects inspired by the Games and displayed at Olympic and Paralympic venues.
The Royal Holloway Department of Drama and Theatre's involvement includes Matthew Cohen's model theatre puppetry project called ‘Rowers’ engaging students from the department and Libby Worth was involved with Dell Olsen and others on ‘The Lost Swimming Pool…’ along with 9 students.
If you went to the events scattered over campus and enjoyed them in June 2010 please vote for the project, either through the voting website or on Twitter by tweeting "Creative Campus Initiative #podiumawards".

The Podium Awards is a prestigious one-off celebration recognising the vital role colleges and universities across the UK have played in delivering the London 2012 Games.
Podium will be hosting a glamorous Awards Evening on 3 May 2012 to showcase the very best of the Further and Higher Education sectors. The Podium Awards Evening will take place at Forman's Fish Island overlooking the London 2012 Olympic Stadium.
Six outstanding projects have been shortlisted for the prestigious ‘Coubertin’s Olympic Vision’ Award as part of the Podium Awards Evening. Voted upon by the public, this award acknowledges the project that most lives up to the ideals of the founder of the modern Olympics, Pierre de Coubertin.
The winner of 'Coubertin's Olympic Vision' will be announced as the finale of the Podium Awards Evening on 3 May 2012.
