Swansea College of Art, UWTSD will launch its Summer Shows - a vast digital exhibition celebrating the work and achievements of graduating students on July 8.

The online exhibition showcases the class of 2021 from across art and performance, design, and media.

Our brilliant graduating students normally show their work in our gallery spaces and at locations across the city. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic means that this won’t be happening in 2021. Instead, students will be showing their amazing work digitally, made possible by their extraordinary efforts to explore presentational possibilities, to develop collaborative platforms, and to create a relevant digital presence.

Dr Mark Cocks, Assistant Dean of Swansea College of Art, UWTSD said: “The unprecedented global challenges of the last year have changed the ways we all view the world around us. As emerging creatives our students have been thrust into a social context of reflection, collaboration, and endeavour.

“In response, these graduates have shown exceptional resilience and focus to find inspiring new responses to the evolving cultural flux. Supported by our amazing staff and through industry collaboration these graduates have extended their digital attributes and forged agile transferable skills that make them ready for a variety of future careers.

“It’s so important to showcase their work, to introduce their talents and kick-start opportunities. Lois Davies from Surface Pattern and Textiles has already won the Romo Award at New Designers. Her success builds on that of our past graduates who are working throughout the creative industries. We wish the 2021 graduates the very best for their exciting futures and that you enjoy discovering their talents within this wonderful showcase.”
