What does the future of art, design, fashion, music look like? Origins Creatives 2023 might provide a few clues!
This free exhibition is UAL Awarding Body's annual celebration of student creativity. From Friday 21 to Sunday 23 July, The Truman Brewery in east London (just off Brick Lane), will showcase a wonderfully diverse range of paintings, photography, drawings, sculptures, textiles, and more. There's even a show reel of moving images and audio points where you can listen to original music created by the students.
On top of introducing you to a new generation of creatives, the exhibition is a fantastic way to gain some insight into the kind of qualifications that UAL Awarding Body offers.
Origins Creatives features work from the UAL subject areas of Art and Design, Fashion Business and Retail, Creative Media, Music Performance and Production, Performing Arts, Entry Level 3 Certificates and the Extended Project Qualification. Know a creative type who's at a crossroads in their education journey? Considering returning to study yourself? This event might just inspire you to take the plunge!
And don't worry if you can't make it down to Shoreditch — there will also be an online showcase, so you can soak up all that student creativity from the comfort of your sofa.
Prefer to experience it IRL? Book your free ticket here. Origins Creatives is open 10.30am-5pm on Friday 21 July and Saturday 22 July, and from 11am-3pm on Sunday 23 July, but you're not required to book a specific time slot — just fold your visit into a leisurely weekend stroll down Brick Lane and pop in whenever you fancy it!
Origins Creatives. 21-23 July at Trumans Brewery in Ely's Yard, Hanbury Street (Shoreditch).
