Excite – end of year exhibitions

Our academic year culminates with the end of year exhibitions, showcased under Excite. Bachelor of Design and Creative Studies students all contribute to the shows by designing, budgeting, marketing and curating their work for keen viewing by family, friends and the community. The end of year events also includes the annually anticipated Collections show, presenting work by Bachelor of Design (Fashion) students, and a screening of film and animation work at the local cinema.

Surface 

Surface stands testament to the students’ extensive learning during the one year Certificate in Creative Studies programme. Students enrol with varied abilities and experience in design and art, contributing to a rich diversity of work. 

Students enjoy a year of experimentation in different subject areas. Studio papers provide a range of choices, including animation, video, web design, printmaking, jewellery, painting, illustration and stained glass. The end of year exhibitions include  a variety of digital, drawing, and design projects.

Collections 

Collections provides the opportunity for our fledgling fashion designers to showcase their latest collections in an exciting and inspirational display of talent and creativity. The emphasis of this annual event is the third-year graduate collections, which demonstrate the designers’ individual directions. These are accompanied by stand-out looks created by students in their first two years of study and our Graduate Diploma of Design students.
