MARCH 2016 NEWSLETTER THE LATEST NEWS FOR ALL UNIVERSITY STAFF PONTIO OPENS Having opened its doors in early December, Pontio, the University’s new Arts and Innovation Centre, moved into a new phase at the beginning of the year with the Centre’s teaching and learning spaces being used for the first time and the Students’ Union relocating to the building. The first lecture to be held at the 450-seat lecture room 5, was “Scientific Writing and Communication” by Dr Tracey Lloyd from the School of Psychology. Tracey said: “I am really excited to be teaching in Pontio. This brand new facility will really benefit both the local community and the University. Being born and bred in north Wales, I am very proud to have the first teaching slot in this innovative building.” Professor Oliver Turnbull, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Teaching and Learning, said: “It’s wonderful to see the lecture spaces of Pontio open for teaching, and especially appropriate that the first lecture there is delivered by a staff member in Psychology who has recently been awarded a Teaching Fellowship.” As well as teaching and learning facilities and Arloesi Pontio Innovation, the Centre has an eclectic arts programme, offering everything from big drama productions in Theatr Bryn Terfel to films in the 200-seater cinema, comedy nights in the Studio and much more. Thousands have already visited the centre to enjoy everything from Only Men Aloud to an opera based on mindfulness, school and community concerts and a Welsh-language panto. The highlight of the spring season will be the staging of Chwalfa by Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru, an adaptation by Gareth Miles of the novel by T Rowland Hughes which will be performed at Pontio between 17-27 February.
