Footballs past present and future tackled via photographs at University event

Artist-in-residence for both the Football Association and Sport England, internationally acclaimed photographer Stuart Roy Clarke is to present on his work at the University in a free public event at 6pm on Thursday 9 February 2017.

The presentation will involve a discussion, followed by a Q&A of the changes occurring at all levels of the game. Clarke will use his extensive collection of photographs to discuss modern football’s relevance to fans and how the game’s culture has changed.

The University’s Unit for Diversity, Inclusion and Community Engagement (DICE) will host the free public event, ‘The Game: Football’s Future and its Past – in Pictures’, in Ken Edwards Lecture Theatre 3, University of Leicester.

John Williams, from the School of Media, Communication and Sociology and Co-Director of DICE, said: “We can use Stuart's magnificent photographs of 'football as home' as a vital starting place to discuss what has improved in the game and the football spectator experience over the past 25 years - but also what has been lost, perhaps for good.”

This free public event is open to all and will take place in Ken Edwards Lecture Theatre 3, University of Leicester at 6pm, 9 February 2017. Please book your place using this web link.
