Working with St Catherine’s Hospice and a partnership which celebrates benefits for patients and students, The School of Visual Arts exhibited a fantastic and inspiring range of digital art work as part of a ‘Dying matters’ event on 15th May 2019. Level 3 UAL Art & Design, Year 1 students specialising in ‘digital image making’ displayed work from their final year 1 unit, where they were asked to respond to a theme of ‘What does peace mean to you?’. Their final pieces were exhibited in the Garden room at St Catherine’s as large format A1 prints. Students have interpreted this theme in a wide range of responses, including a mental health campaign for The Samaritans focusing on loss and bereavement, love and relationships, faith and religion, the forces of good against evil, and both love and loss.
Darren Brown, who teaches these students said ‘It’s amazing for our student work to be seen in the local community and I know my students are very proud to have been selected to display their work for this event’. Thank you to Amanda Lavery, Level 3 UAL Art & Design Course leader for working with St Catherine’s to organise this exhibition – we look forward to continued links in the future!
