The Creative Arts End of Year Show is one the College's most eagerly awaited annual events – when art, design, media, music, fashion, dance and drama students exhibit their work through a combination of recorded performances, installations, projects, images and short films.
At this time of year, students would be getting ready to show their work in the College's gallery space. With new health and safety measures in place due to Covid-19, the event could not take place on campus this year so staff and students worked together to create a virtual End of Year Show and showcase their work, which was produced before and during the lockdown.
The show was streamed virtually and attended by invited guests, Creative Arts students as well as their family, friends and teachers, who watched a variety of drama, music and dance performances, as well as media, arts, design and fashion pieces in the live showreel.
Jon Fell, Head of Creative Arts at Southwark College, said: "Exhibiting our students’ work at our end-of-year show has been a highlight for all Creative Arts students at Southwark College. Showcasing their work online was an exciting project and a platform to engage with future employers.
"Although it was not possible to stage a show on campus, we're confident that our virtual show celebrated the hard work and dedication of our talented students and the encouragement and support they received from their teachers throughout the academic year and during these difficult times."
The Creative Industries offers a fascinating range of careers, and the chance to express yourself creatively through your work. At Southwark College, you will explore and experiment with a wide variety of techniques in our well-equipped studios, benefitting from our central location close to theatres and venues and strong links with employers and industry specialists who regularly deliver guest lectures.
Southwark College is also hosting virtual sessions with experienced Creative Industries professionals as part of the Southwark College Live series. The talks focus on the employability skills required in the Creative Industries and so far have featured West End Actor/Dancer Jenny Legg, Festival Stage Production Manager Steve Cheney, Director/Producer and documentary maker Barney Douglas, and Rosemary Cronin Artist, Writer and Lecturer.
These popular free sessions are streamed on Zoom and Facebook Live and are open to students and members of the public, with attendees participating in a Q&A section with the speakers.
