Our Art, Our City came to Smithfield Works

Posted: 13 July 2023

On Wednesday 12th July a private VIP viewing was held to launch the Stoke-on-Trent College ‘Our Art, Our City’ pop-up exhibition. This annual celebration of student talent showcases a vibrant collection of art and design and the wide-ranging skills students have developed during their time studying courses offered within the Digital and Creative Hub.

Themes for this year’s exhibition include profiling the industrial heritage of Stoke-on-Trent and its regeneration journey, an interpretation piece based on body image with strong iconic and thought-provoking images, and a focus on the environment looking at plastic and pollution with a varying mix of outcomes using painting, photography, sculpture, print and motion. The exhibition also provided a platform for digital and gaming students to demonstrate their creativity.

During the launch, guests heard from College Principal and CEO, Lisa Capper MBE and a selection of level 3 students from graphics, digital and creative media courses. Students spoke passionately about their journey at the College and their progression into the industry or to Higher Education in the coming months.
