Browse creative students’ work in digital edition of our Degree Show

Date 29.06.2021

The pandemic has failed to dim the creativity of University of Northampton students, whose Covid-era work has just been released online.

Final year students from the Faculty of Arts, Science & Technology have had to contend with working in a pandemic, which meant some of their learning had to be switched online.

The hard work of staff and students alike, to stay on track, has paid off, with the results now available to browse on the University website, which is hosting the traditional end of year Degree Show in digital format.

Work from students studying the following subjects is included in the exhibition, which would normally be a physical event: Architectural Technology, Fashion Design, Fashion Promotion & Communication, Fine Art, Games Art, Graphic Communication, Illustration, Interior Architecture & Spatial Design, Photography and Product Design.

Faculty Dean, John Sinclair, said: “The show is a celebration of this year’s graduates’ ideas, creativity and originality. It’s also a celebration of their resilience, their tenacity and determination to keep going, despite the extraordinary impact of the pandemic.

“I’ve been stunned and humbled by the way our students have embraced the challenge of this most difficult of years and have managed to produce work of frankly stunning quality and originality.

“I’d also like to put on record my grateful thanks for the amazing work of my colleagues to support students in the studios wherever possible and remotely when not.

“Finally, as has been said elsewhere, when faced with lockdown, most of us turned to the Arts for solace and inspiration; the Arts students at UON have not disappointed, as will be evident to everyone who enjoys this Degree Show.”
