UoG show will celebrate next generation of artistic talent

University of Gloucestershire’s 2024 Creative Arts Degree Show will provide graduates, the local community and industry professionals with an opportunity to celebrate the imagination, innovation and dedication of the next generation of artistic talent.

A platform to push the boundaries of creative expression, the show shines a spotlight on the work of University students across a range of disciplines, including artwork, zines, books, films, games, music, photography, creative writing, performances, and a range of immersive audiovisual experiences.

This year’s School of Creative Arts Degree Show will be launched at the University’s Park Campus in Cheltenham on Friday 7 June (6pm to 9pm) and runs until 16 June. The show is free to attend and no advance booking is required. The daily opening times are 10am to 4pm. 

Dr Matthew Lovett, Associate Head of the University’s School of Creative Arts, said: “We extend a warm welcome to UoG graduates, the local community and members of the creative arts sector to join us in celebrating the achievements of this year’s graduating cohort and wish them well as they shape the future of the creative arts.

“The annual show is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the outstanding, stimulating and often award-winning work that’s being produced by our students on their journey to successful careers within the industry.”

Graduates and students from the School of Creative Arts have won a number of national industry awards over the past 12 months, including from the Royal Television Society, the Sports Journalists’ Association and the Royal Horticultural Society.

Dr Lovett added: “The University’s School of Creative Arts has roots stretching back to 1852, with the founding of the Cheltenham School of Art, with a reputation based on our students and staff, and our commitment to creative practice, inclusion and innovation. We collaborate and develop outstanding work across a wide range of creative and cultural subject areas.

“Our students produce work that enables them to progress into careers in the arts and creative industries, and our graduates are successful and award-winning designers, artists, filmmakers, musicians, journalists, poets and historians.”
