Students from Visual Arts enjoyed a trip to Manchester on 24th November to visit the ‘Create Your Future’ UCAS fair and also the ‘Van Gogh Alive’ immersive exhibition at Salford Quays.

“It felt so good to be able to take students out and about again because due to the Covid restrictions over the last 2 years this was for many of them their first trip with Runshaw. The students had the opportunity to speak to staff from over 50 universities from all over the UK about progression routes to careers in the creative industries at the Create Your Future event.

The Van Gogh Alive experience was inspiring for all and for many also quite emotional.  It was a complete break from traditional gallery presentations as the whole space was alive with colour, moving images, sound, quotes from the artist and even scents to enhance the experience. It was simply breathtaking.” – Alex Lowman, Course Leader
