Art & Design
Welcome to the Postgraduate showcase and the School of Art and Design. The School has a long tradition of producing employable graduates, making a significant contribution to creative industries around the world. It is our distinct belief that we value our students as independent creative practitioners enhanced through a community that shares a desire to explore innovative thinking and making.
Living in and with the ‘The New Normal’ we have been continually impressed by the resilience of our postgraduates and their ability to identify new opportunities to become active agents of creative change. They have challenged, innovated overcome ambiguity, uncertainty to produce a distinctive body of work.
The diversity and complexity of this year’s work across art and design demonstrates a willingness of the postgraduates to expand and explore their own understanding and it is apparent in the work that this year’s students have a new and alternative ambition to actively challenge the future of the creative industries.
As we acclimatise ourselves to the ‘New Normal’ I would like to give a sincere thank you to all the students, staff, technical and professional teams you have set the ‘air on fire’.
- Nick Gorse, Head of School
