In Pictures: Degree Shows 2017

By Sarah Packer

Hundreds of visitors explored the work of our students at the opening night of our Degree Shows 2017 last Friday – kickstarting a brilliant two weeks celebrating innovation and the freshest in creative talent.

Industry partners, friends, family, staff, students and members of the public grabbed the opportunity to immerse themselves in our collaborative creative community as our city centre campus transforms from a vibrant workshop and studio complex into a dynamic, public showcase for new work in art, craft, design and digital media, from 10-22 June.

With fantastic work on display (and for sale) across Illustration, Animation, Graphic Design, Crafts, Costume Production, Fine Art, Game Arts, Film, Photography, Painting, Fashion and more, our talented students’ efforts and ambitions are rewarded time for celebration, positive feedback and plenty of new opportunities.

There’s still time to visit the Degree Shows, (find out event opening times here) alongside our Fashion Graduate Show on the 13 & 14 June and our Media Showcase at Vue Cinema on Wed 21 June. Find out about booking tickets here.
