Futures Talk 6-7th March 2018

For the second year running; our third-year Art Theory and Practice students put on a brilliant series of talks over two days entitled ‘Futures’. The talks were devised to inspire and advice our cohort, as well as Manchester School of Art students, on how to pursue a career in the creative industries after graduation. They also ran a print fair in the Grosvenor Gallery where they sold work from MSoA students, the invited speakers, and external artists.

Both the talks and the fair were very well received, and the Art Theory and Practice staff would like to thank our students for all the hard work they put into putting the event together!

Below are a few images from the two days…
