A new world is emerging. Amid the unknowns of our present lives are spaces in which new ideas, new colours, new ecologies and new economies can take root. Discover our graduating artists, designers and innovators as they share ways for the world not just to grow, but to flourish.

This year, we invite you to explore the graduating work across a festival of digital and physical events.
