UWE Bristol’s annual Creative Industries degree show is back and showcasing work from over 500 talented students; 9th – 13th June.

Expect to see inspiring exhibitions from undergraduates and postgraduates of the university’s art, design, film and journalism programmes.

This year’s title is ‘Conform’ – a theme developed by students William Bently and Myah Calista, who drew inspiration from the many students of the past who have rebelled and protested for various causes.

On the concept behind their designs, they said:

‘Why do so many students choose to demonstrate? The year that we started university was the beginning of a period of uncertainty and austerity that affected us all. The two general elections that we’ve seen, the Brexit vote, Donald Trump, artificial intelligence and the ongoing financial crisis have bred a sense of compliance with the system that we live in.

But we do not all comply with the system. Once we start to learn about the world outside of our own, we see the need to go against the grain, to rebel against the status quo.’

This event is the highlight of the academic year and an opportunity to see exceptional work across the UWE Bristol’s City Campus.
