In 2018 the first Creative Exchange exhibition highlighted excellent collaborative projects between staff, students and external partners. This time we are turning our focus to our alumni and the varied, challenging, happy, tumultuous, unexpected, or downright weird paths they have taken since leaving AUB.

The exhibition is a portrait of where they are now and the decisions they have taken and the skills they have needed on their journey from student to practitioner. It illustrates the advantage of developing a specialist skill brings to an individual’s future. It also examines the interconnections between disciplines and the wider opportunities that bring for innovation and growth.

The exhibition will enable current students to see how their skills can be applied in diverse contexts, employers to understand the breadth of talent coming out of AUB and parents, teachers and pupils to gain an insight into possible futures in the ever-changing creative industries.

The exhibition has been coordinated by the Innovation Team at AUB who support AUB’s connections with industry and the wider community, ensuring staff and student creative practice has an impact on the world, and that external partners can benefit from the talent, expertise and equipment held at AUB.

It has been created by current students and alumni from MA Commercial Photography and MA Architecture.
