Annual Conference

The UAL Awarding Body Annual Conference 2018 took place on Friday 2 February at Shoreditch Town Hall, London.

Over 400 people attended to hear about sector developments, outstanding practice and from key voices in the creative industries. The day also included subject specific updates and plenty of opportunities to network with those working in other disciplines and institutions.

Highlights from the conference are now available to watch here!

The conference will return again in 2019, so keep an eye out for the date and details on how to attend closer to the time.
