Visit the Summer Shows 2021

Our brilliant graduating students normally show their work in our gallery spaces, on catwalks and in London design shows. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic means that this won’t be happening in 2021. Instead students will be showing their work digitally – check out the Brighton Exhibitions website.
