Press release   •   Jun 21, 2018 14:04 BST

A unique exhibition showcasing the creative talents of final year students from Northumbria University, Newcastle, has opened its doors to the public.

Every summer, graduating students from Northumbria’s Arts, Design and Architecture programmes put their work on show during the University’s annual REVEAL event.

The free, two-week-long exhibition, which features work by students from 13 of Northumbria’s creative programmes, has taken on an extra dimension this year after being named as an official event in the Great Exhibition of the North schedule.

Running from this Friday 22 June until 9 September, the Great Exhibition is a celebration of the North of England’s pioneering spirit and the impact of the region’s inventors, artists and designers.

It features a packed programme of exhibits, live performances, displays of innovation and new artworks, and will shine a global spotlight on the work of the University’s talented students.

During the REVEAL opening night preview last week, industry partners, potential employers and members of the public joined students and their friends and family, to celebrate the success of this year’s cohort and meet the expert academics who have taught them over the last few years.

The REVEAL exhibition is now open to the public from 10am to 6pm, seven days a week up until Saturday 30 June. REVEAL will also be open to those attending the upcoming Northumbria University Open Days, on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 June.

In the Department of Arts, work by students from Northumbria’s Animation, Film and TV Production and Fine Art programmes is on show. In Northumbria’s School of Design, final year students from Fashion, Fashion Design and Marketing, Fashion Communication, Graphic Design, Interactive Design, 3D Design, Design for Industry and Interior Design are showcasing their work. Meanwhile, in the Department of Architecture and the Build Environment, students graduating from Architecture and Interior Architecture programmes are also exhibiting their final year projects.

In addition to REVEAL, individual degree shows have been taking place for many of the programmes, both across Newcastle and further afield, bringing the work of Northumbria students to the attention of industry experts and potential employers.
