The Design School of Kingston University announces a one-day seminar addressing the issue of the future of art and design graduate shows.

The exhibition of final projects by art and design students is a fundamental aspect of the student experience and has been a foundation of how art and design have been taught for centuries. Yet the landscape of art and design education has been transformed with many more graduates and a proliferation of colleges and courses vying for attention. Moreover, disciplines have emerged that do not necessarily favour static exhibitions and new technology may sometimes provide more suitable contexts for promoting and exhibiting graduate work. The expectations of diverse stakeholders – students, faculty, institutions, the media, employers and industry – may be at odds and little research takes place to assess the efficacy of degree shows.

Growing from research undertaken at Kingston University, this seminar seeks to extend the debate about the future of degree shows to include the higher education art and design community across the UK. The seminar organisers invite creative and lateral thinking about the purpose of the degree show and how these purposes could be better served in the future.

Who should come?
Around fifty creative stakeholders interested in the future of the graduate show, including educators, employers and graduates.

Why you should come:
Join a key sector discussion exploring stakeholder ideas on graduate show futures.

The key content themes will include:
The Graduate Show as assessment, as performance, as curated exhibition and as new technology showcase.

What is included:
A day of networking, speakers, workshops, lunch, plus entrance to Design Museum exhibitions.
