From 24 June, the RuTC Art and Design and Creative Media Exhibitions and Performing Arts Showcase went live in the college’s first ever virtual exhibitions. Usually, these events take place physically every year to display the work students have done over the past year, but due to coronavirus staff and students found another way to share their amazing work.
Marc Dodi, Head of Creative Industries, said, “The coronavirus lockdown has challenged the way that we work and learn and through this our staff and students in the School of Creative Industries have risen to the challenge. They have not let the global pandemic stop them from doing what they love!
“Throughout the lockdown staff have encouraged our students to remain creative, and explore their experiences during this extraordinary time, and from this we have some exciting work to share with you.
“We would normally invite you into the College to join us in celebrating our student’s end of year projects in our annual exhibitions and showcase. Instead, we invite you to join us from the comfort of your own home.”
As the virtual exhibitions and showcase were a huge success and open the students’ work up to a wider audience, the School of Creative Industries are considering to host virtual events like these again in the future.
