The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

Flashdance!

On a more optimistic note than my last: A dancing flash mob at the Louvre. Who wants to organize one at New Walk? Or better yet, Jewry Wall? :-)

That's awesome! I couldn't see a link to a video on the news site (but was probably being thick), so I found a youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpwHI57rFTo
I think Jewry wall might be a problem because you need some crowds to impress in the first place! The only crowds I see in Leicester are at Highcross...

Well, Highcross is built over top of a burial ground, so you could make a case for it being a heritage site!

For those not in the know, Highcross is a shopping mall. :D

I refer you all to this video recorded at Orton Square (outside Curve) earlier this year.
