Coventry University students showcase work

Emily Fish 24th May, 2017

STUDENTS at Coventry University are set to exhibit work in some of the city’s favourite art hubs.

As part of this year’s degree shows, students are preparing an action-packed programme of photography, theatre and arts, which will be showcased in the Belgrade Theatre, FarGo Village and on the catwalk in Square One at the university.

Held each spring to display students’ work, this year’s event includes 16 exhibitions, 12 theatre productions and all-new history documentaries.

The main degree shows will run across the university campus between Wednesday, May 24 and Saturday, May 27 – with additional events up until Sunday, June 4.

Fashion students will showcase their final collections down the catwalk in Square One at the Hub on Thursday, May 25.

Photography students will publicly display their work when they host the unwritten exhibition at FarGo Village from Saturday, May 27 May to Sunday, June 4.

Theatre students will also play their part when they present a host of performances in the city centre – with a selection being invited to perform at the Belgrade Theatre from Wednesday, May 31 to Friday, June 2.

For the first time, the event will exhibit displays from the university’s humanities departments, including film documentaries from history and sociology students.

There will also be new digital picture book displays for children, alongside radio dramas and poetry from English and creative writing students.

Shaun Hides, dean of the university’s faculty of arts and humanities said with a range of performances, readings and exhibitions there is sure to be something for everyone to come and enjoy.

He added: “Our degree shows are a great way for our next generation of artists, designers, performers and writers to complete their undergraduate studies with us and celebrate fantastic achievements.

“They are also a wonderful showcase through which everyone can see the creative talent that emerges year on year from Coventry.

“I hope as many people as possible can visit us in the next few weeks to celebrate the success of our students and the culmination of all their hard work.”

Visitors can share their pictures of the shows on Twitter using the hashtag #covdegreeshows
