The vibrant Department of Art and Communication has a reputation for nurturing outstanding creative talent. Our practitioners are skilful, conceptually adroit, and able to use emerging technologies in order to respond to the challenges of the world in imaginative and progressive ways.
It has been an extraordinary year. In September we moved into the award-winning Barbara Hepworth Building to begin an exciting new chapter for the School of Art, Design and Architecture, bringing our creative talent and disciplines under one roof. Yet in March we all went into lockdown.
Despite this, as a versatile community we have continued to flourish and grow - winning national and international accolades and stimulating exchange and debate with local, national and global creatives. This is because we encourage our students to be bold and brave, to take risks, and to be resilient. As staff we are delighted to be able to share some of the brilliant work our Graduating students have made and we hope you can join us in congratulating them on their outstanding achievement!
