Oldham College Creative Exhibition returns after two-year hiatus

Oldham College has re-opened its doors for the Creative Department’s annual exhibition.

Hundreds of visitors have flocked to the event, which showcased the final pieces of work created by students from the Faculty of Digital and Creative, who have been working tirelessly on their projects since February.

It was the first time in two years that the event has taken place in physical form, as the Covid pandemic has forced the previous two exhibitions to be cancelled, with the 2020 event converting to an online only exhibition.

Both students and staff have been working hard in preparation to make sure this year’s return is one to remember.

Creative Programme Leader, Alison Cropper, says she is proud of what the students and staff have achieved.  “The exhibition promised to be exciting, the richness and quality of the work produced over the last year is incredible, and a testament to our students’ talent and commitment, as well as to the dedication and support of their staff teams.”

A wide range of graphic design, creative media, fashion, games design, art, and photography pieces were proudly displayed at the event, inviting visitors to view, and even interact with. Short films, virtual game environments, photography, fashion displays, and interactive artwork were just some of the pieces on display for people to enjoy.

The exhibition was initially invite-only, but will be open to the general public at Oldham College’s Family Open Day, on Saturday 2nd July at 10am in the Digital and Creative Centre.

Here are some highlights of the evening:

It was the Oldham College community open day recently and we went down with the Revolution Cube to provide entertainment for the day.  Staff were on hand to discuss their range of courses to prospective students, and there was a variety of activities for all ages to take part in, while Elliot from Breakfast provided commentary throughout the day.

I grabbed a camera and captured a taster of the day.  Here are the results…

 

 

Oldham College Celebrates Creative Success

Hundreds of visitors flocked to the annual Creative Exhibition at Oldham College on Thursday night (13th June 2019) to experience the sights and sounds of their students’ end-of-year project work.

Students from the Digital and Creative Faculty have been working tirelessly on their final major projects since February, where they have been researching, planning, and creating a final outcome in their chosen subject area.

An exciting array of art, design, fashion, media, games, and photography pieces were showcased at the event. Visitors were invited to view, and even interact, with some of the displays.

Decorated outfits, thought provoking photography, and immersive game environments were amongst the many exhibits that visitors could expect to see and explore on the evening, along with eye-catching artwork and cinematic promotional films.

Head of Faculty Joanne Manship was extremely proud of how well the students have performed this year and was pleased with the success of the event.

“The students have worked really hard to create an exhibition of such a high standard. The evening gave our students the opportunity to present their work professionally and discuss their final project work with family, friends, and visitors.

We are very proud of our students’ accomplishments and this year they are predicted to achieve grades well above national standards.”

The students who took part in the event are now preparing for their next exciting step, at either university, an apprenticeship, or straight into employment.

Here are some highlights of the evening.
