LCC is a truly diverse creative community of students, staff and graduates, whose work challenges, questions, inspires and positively impacts our disciplines and creative industries.

Graduates have been asked to submit project ideas that make a real and positive difference in diversifying the Design, Media and Screen industries and ensuring progression into these disciplines is open and inclusive.
