Congratulations to 2017 Turner Prize winner Lubain Himid

Publish date: 06/12/2017

We are delighted to add to the many congratulations being proffered from around the world to Professor Lubaina Himid MBE for being awarded the Turner Prize 2017 in Hull last night.

Professor Himid was a residential tenant of ours some time before we began to offer our serviced apartments to the market and then she leased office space from us before joining the University of Central Lancashire.

The award recognises both her cultural and informative contribution to racial understanding and we are delighted that such a prestigious prize has come to our town and university.
