Students showcase work at iconic Manchester venue

UCEN Manchester showcase at Victoria Baths

Final year Creative and Media Arts students at UCEN Manchester displayed their major projects at Victoria Baths on Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 April 2022.

The impressive building, which has been beautifully restored, first opened its doors to the people of Manchester in 1906 and was the perfect location for Level 6 3D and Animation, Fashion Design, Graphic Design and Advertising, Make Up and Special FX, and Photography students to promote their work.

The students exhibiting at Victoria Baths shared their major projects, which are completed during the third year of study at UCEN Manchester and contribute towards 30% of each student’s final grade.

Glynn Mason, Director of Curriculum for Creative and Media Arts at UCEN Manchester, said: “Our students spent countless hours planning and preparing for the event and it was great to see everything come together.

“All our courses are career focused and the exhibition was open to the public so that our students could showcase the work they’ve produced for their major projects to potential employers and professionals in the relevant industries. 

“Family and friends also came along to support our students and see first-hand what their loved ones have produced.  It was a fantastic event with an incredible atmosphere and I’m proud of our students.”

Creative and Media Arts Tutor, Carl Pinnington, organised the show and was delighted to see everything come together.  Carl said: “The exhibition is an annual event, but we haven’t been able to hold it since 2019 due to the pandemic.

“The show was meant to take place at Victoria Baths in 2020 so, I’m pleased that our students could finally display their work at such a magnificent venue.”
