Dates: 16 December 2023 – 18 January 2024
Location: Northwest Gallery, AUB Campus
Now in its third year, the All Access AUB programme welcomed a group of Year 12 students over the summer to give them a taste of what it's like to be a student and study a creative course at AUB. Students took part in a diverse range of workshops where they were encouraged by AUB tutors to explore and experiment with different mediums to develop their skills and portfolio of work.
They explored personal responses to the theme "Inside Out – Thinking Through Materials", entering and discovering their own journeys, using a range of materials, ideas and imagination. The resulting work reflects the high quality of the students' engagement, tenacity and creativity within a very short and intense few days, which we're delighted with and grateful for.
The All Access AUB exhibition showcases this explorative and experimental work, highlighting and celebrating their creative talents and curious minds.
All Access AUB
All those with the potential to benefit from higher education, no matter their background, deserve the opportunity to do so. At AUB, we're committed to making that happen, which is why All Access AUB was developed. All Access AUB is a unique and intensive programme of activity for post-16 students from underrepresented groups. It's specifically designed to support entry to creative higher education and students enrolled on the scheme take part in a summer residential, have their work included in an industry-standard exhibition, receive one-to-one portfolio support from AUB tutors, and attend a Transition to Creative Higher Education event. The exhibition is a chance to reflect on and celebrate the achievements of the young people so far.
