BREAKING THROUGH – Degree Shows 2017

Risk-taking and convention-breaking — discover the future of creative practice at our annual showcase of fresh talent in art, design, craft and digital media. Taking place throughout our HE campus, our state-of-the-art workshops and studios will transform into a dynamic exhibition space, free and open to the public from Saturday 10 to Thursday 22 June 2017.

Showcasing work from students across the college’s Undergraduate, Masters and Foundation Diploma in Art & Design programmes, this summer’s Degree Shows offer an exclusive window into life at an independent art school, and a chance to preview a new wave of makers ready to take over the creative industries.

With open doors across all our working studios, guests are invited to explore cutting-edge facilities such as FabLab Plymouth and our £8 million dedicated crafts workshops for ceramics, glass and metal work. An eclectic range of mediums, both modern and traditional, will be exhibited across the college — including film, photography, fine art installation, fashion design, game arts, illustration, glassworks, ceramics, animation, 3D printing and so much more.

You can get involved too with artwork available to purchase, film screenings, and live presentations running throughout the show schedule. Including our unmissable Graduate Fashion Show, taking place at The Red House on the 13 & 14 June. 

Considering a course with us? Make sure to register for our official Open Day on Saturday 17 June, the perfect opportunity to connect with staff, alumni and preview the thrilling culmination of three years study here at our unique institute.

Entirely free, open to the public, and the highlight of the UK’s creative calendar. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
