Reflections on Show Time

UAL Degree Shows Collage

We can think of many reasons why visiting the UAL Student Degree Shows is so important, from celebrating our students work and the culmination of their degrees, to keeping an eye on emerging trends and being inspired by the diversity of the ideas, themes and approaches. Exceed organised a programme of guided tours, of all the College summer degree shows, which provided the kind of insight you don’t get from walking around a show on your own.

One of the tours, organised in partnership with Cath Caldwell, focused on the enterprising nature of the BA Graphic Design, BA Jewellery Design and BA Product Design courses at CSM.  Here’s an extract from a write up of that tour:

On this tour, UAL staff were given the opportunity to see a range of dynamic and creative work but also given a context into the practices that helped create that work and their responses were greatly positive.

Katy says “From my point of view it’s very inspiring to hear students talk about their work and it takes me back to a time where I was creative and makes me realise why I love working here”

Claire Barratt says “You don’t get this context from walking around a degree show by yourself and it’s been really interesting and useful to hear about all the amazing collaborations with companies that are done”.  Written by Grace Carroll.

If you attended one of the tours or visited the shows – we’d love to hear why you think visiting the student shows is important.
