Dale Robertson, Principal Lecturer at DMU School of Arts said: “There are about 15 students involved with the exhibition from first years to PhD students from displaying their work to working behind the scenes.

“This is the first of what we hope will be an annual exhibition and we plan in future years to link the exhibition with others in Loughborough and Nottingham to make an East Midlands-wide event.”
