Origins Creative Arts Festival

This July at the Truman Brewery, UAL Awarding Body's Origins Creative Arts Festival offered the chance to view original creative talent from across the UK.

Origins Creative Arts Festival is an annual celebration of the work that students have completed throughout their programme of study on a UAL Awarding Body qualification. It offers the students an opportunity to exhibit their work in London, and to experience what it is like to be an ‘arts professional’. The theme of this year's exhibition was 'coming into focus' which represents the way that students clarify, consolidate and confirm their skills and their artistic practice whilst studying on UAL Awarding Body qualifications.

This year, UAL Awarding Body received over 350 applications for Origins Creative Arts Festival 2019, 150 of which were exhibited at the Truman Brewery from 26-28 July! Attendees enjoyed work created by talented students across Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4. A range of painting, drawing, sculpture, film and fashion were exhibited, complemented by a Barbican Box workshop on the Friday and a programme of live music on the Saturday.  This year's graphic design was developed by London College of Communication graduate James Land, who produced some exciting visuals which were incorporated into the design and curation of the festival.
