FROM June 11 to 22 final year students from a range of courses across Manchester School of Art showcased their creative and innovative artworks, design pieces, films and architecture projects.

The Degree Show opened with a preview event where students, staff, family, friends and industry members can together to celebrate the launch of the show.

The show this year was not only a celebration of the achievements of final year students at a pivotal moment in their careers, but also celebrated the 20th anniversary of Manchester School of Architecture, with a careers event preview of the show for students and industry professionals and a drinks reception for alumni, industry members, students, staff and special guests on the last night of the show.

The standard of work at the show has been extremely high with prizes been awarded to many students, including: Joshua Till (Manchester Craft and Design Centre Graduate Award), Bex Ilsley and Rebecca Halliwell-Sutton (The Woon Prize shortlisted), and a range of MAFA prize winners.

This year’s Degree Show has also received lots of positive feedback from visitors and on social media.

Penny Macbeth, Interim Dean of the School of Art, said: “Our Degree Show this year is ambitious in every way, be it scale, colour, complexity or content. It reflects our student’s inventiveness and curiosity. We have had visitors from all over the UK and Europe, industry professionals, schools and college groups, friends and family. It is a real celebration and coming together at this pivotal moment in our students’ careers.”
