A Queen’s documentary

In Transient Spaces on March 11, 2009 at 5:19 am

One of the more dominant communities I’ve been involved in is Queen’s College. I spent two years living with 200 hundred other students. We shared bathrooms and meals, we socialised together and now I share my first house with people I met there.

There is a huge community spirit and togetherness at Queen’s. It is also a very insular place. Most of your spare time is spent doing college events, and hanging out primarily with other people from your college. There are a huge number of organised events that most residents attend. Formal dinners, rowing day, balls, corridor parties, 21sts. It tends to take over your life.

This is the community I think I’d like to explore through my documentary. It is a foreign world to anyone who has not lived it. There are many positives and negatives, and for some people it becomes overwhelming.

I’ve spent the majority of my university life at Queen’s. Now that I’ve left, I think I could analyse  it with an insiders knowledge, and an outsiders perspective.
