Creative Industries Showcase

We have developed a digital showcase to celebrate the fantastic work and achievements of our students and our Graduate Showcase Exhibition will be held at Spike Island, running for 10 days, starting on 16 June 2021.

Emerging talent in extraordinary times

This year is one of unprecedented change, challenge and innovation. UWE Bristol students have responded by demonstrating extraordinary resilience and unbounded creativity. This shows renewed strength, presenting a creative lens through which to view a world transforming before our eyes.

Digital Showcase

In celebration, we’re launching our second Digital Showcase on 15 June 2021, featuring exciting work from hundreds of our graduating students. You can view new work from 25 of UWE Bristol's creative courses across art, design, animation, fashion, media, performance, photography and filmmaking.

This online platform is a way to showcase new talent and to support professional practice, enterprise and employability, helping hundreds of graduates to join the creative workforce for the future. 

It also has the potential to reach a wide range of influential audiences around the world, while building momentum and visibility for future shows and screenings of new talent.  

Graduate Showcase Exhibition

The Graduate Showcase Exhibition celebrates the achievements of our graduating students with a physical show, a friends-and-family special preview, and opening for recent alumni, industry partners and general public. Each student is invited to include a digital image for the poster exhibition, and all exhibitors will receive an A3 artist print of their work as a gift. 

Though no substitute for the Degree Show – an annual highlight for the city of Bristol and the creative sector – the Graduate Showcase Exhibition celebrates the exceptional talents of our students during an extraordinary year.

Our Graduate Showcase Exhibition will be held at the UWE Bristol Studios at Spike Island, running for 10 days, starting on 16 June 2021. Please note: the exhibition is not open Monday or Tuesday (days when Spike Island is closed).
