Celebrating the next generation of UAL Awarding Body creatives.

Origins Creatives 2021

The Origins showcase


We're inviting submissions from all UAL Awarding Body qualification subject areas for our Origins Creatives 2021 virtual exhibition, YouTube performance and SoundCloud playlist. Whether you're submitting a piece of music, a video of a performance or an artwork, we're looking for the best work your students have produced on our qualifications this year. Our curator will then choose a selection of the submitted works to showcase on each of these platforms.

Virtual exhibition

We're working with the Kunstmatrix platform to create a virtual exhibition that will feature a curated selection of our student's submissions. Running for one week in the summer, you'll be able to wander through our virtual exhibition rooms and experience all of the inspiration and creativity from home.

22 – 29 July 2021

YouTube performance

As well as our virtual exhibition, we'll be hosting a live performance event on our YouTube channel to showcase student performances, moving images and other media. We'll be announcing more information on how to book a place in the coming weeks, so keep an eye on this page for details.

23 July 2021


Last year, we hosted student music on our Spotify playlist. To make sure that students of all levels can feature music this year, we're moving from Spotify to SoundCloud. Once it's live, we'll be posting a link on this page so that the work of UAL Awarding Body musicians can become the soundtrack to your summer!

Launching 22 July 2021
