Leeds School of Arts End of Year Show sees awards for over 70 student projects
The Leeds School of Arts End of Year Show 2021 opens on a custom-built website at 14:00 on 16 September and is an opportunity for the public to access students’ creative work across six different subjects.
The virtual event will showcase more than 400 individual and group projects and features work by final year undergraduate and postgraduate students from Art and Design, Architecture, Creative Technologies, Film, Music and Sound, and Performing Arts.
The 2021 show will be the second online edition and promises to be even more ambitious, allowing visitors to interact with students work. The creative projects on show are the culmination of students’ final projects undertaken over the past year and give a flavour of the inventiveness of Leeds School of Arts graduates.
The End of Year Show also honours award-winning students across a variety of disciplines who have received course, university, national and International accolades. This year, there are more than 70 awards recognising students’ achievements and original and inspiring responses to a range of social, global and political challenges.
Professor Lisa Stansbie, Dean of Leeds School of Arts, said:
“The LSA End of Year Show has always been a fantastic vehicle for our students to consider how they present their work externally and also provides an opportunity for students to share their achievements with family and friends. Now more than ever an online profile and portfolio is essential for our students as they graduate, and our end of year show website provides just this.
“We are also proud of how LSA students and staff have managed to navigate these difficult times and the work within this show demonstrates the determination and hard work of both. When you visit the website, it has a real sense of how students have found joy in creativity, experimentation and making.”
After its launch this week the website will remain live throughout the next academic year so the public can continue to explore the exhibition in full.
