Celebrating the next generation of UAL Awarding Body creatives.

Welcome to Origins Creatives 2024, UAL Awarding Body’s annual celebration of student achievement.

Origins Creatives is an opportunity for students, teachers and families to come together and celebrate student creativity and hard work. It brings together student work from across the UAL subject areas of Art and Design, Fashion Business and Retail, Creative Media, Music Performance and Production, Performing Arts, Entry Level 3 in Art and Design and Performing Arts, Professional Diplomas, and the Extended Project Qualification.

This year, we are very excited to announce that Origins will be taking place in a new venue, the Mall Galleries. This is an in-person exhibition where our guests will be able to enjoy the incredible work of students studying our qualifications.

Exhibition opening times for the public:

  • Wednesday 17 July, 10am - 5pm
  • Thursday 18 July, 10am - 5pm
  • Friday 19 July, 10am - 5pm
  • Saturday 20 July, 10am - 5pm

Please note, you can visit during any of these times and do not need to specify a time for your visit. We look forward to seeing you there.


The submission window for Origins Creatives 2024 is now closed.
