Art & Design Degree Show 2020


Our Art and Design Degree Show celebrates the talent and innovative work of our final-year students. The exhibition showcases exciting creations by the next generation of artists and designers across our art and design courses, and attracts thousands of visitors including potential employers.


In these challenging times we have made the difficult decision to pause all of our Festival of Creativity 2020 events.

We understand that our end-of-year shows are not just an opportunity for final-year students to showcase their talent, but are also a celebration of their achievements and hard work. This is why we are determined that our class of 2020 will still have opportunities to showcase their work. More information on this to follow.

DMU’s award-winning Vijay Patel Building brings all of our art and design courses together into a stunning architectural space which celebrates transparency and embraces light.

It has been designed to provide inspiring, flexible spaces, studios and facilities which invite creativity and innovation.

The creative industries depend on interdisciplinary, cross-disciplinary, collaborative teams to provide the imagination and knowledge creation that results in the development of new ideas, products and advancement. In response to this, we have created a building where boundaries are removed and the breadth of practices and techniques are revealed to all our students and staff, encouraging them to work together in this experimental playground.

Sitting at the heart of our campus, this landmark building defines us as a 21st Century university. It shows how serious we are about giving our students the very best experience possible and embodies our ambition to provide them with all of the tools they need to achieve their aspirations.


Come and see the building for yourself at one of our Open Days and find out more about our undergraduate and postgraduate art and design courses at DMU.
