Festival volunteers share their experiences in video diaries


A Festival volunteer records a video

The vibrancy of 2017's Imperial Festival has been captured by volunteers in the form of video diaries.

The free public event, which was held at Imperial’s South Kensington Campus on 6-7 May, was a big hit with visitors as they engaged with science, engineering and creativity from the College community.

A team of communications volunteers was out and about all weekend to capture the energy and fun of the Festival on social media, as well as audio and video. Now, the experiences of a select handful of volunteers is being showcased in video diaries which they shot, produced and edited themselves.
