Campus event

Arts University Bournemouth’s Summer Shows are a celebration of the achievements of our 2024 graduating students, with the Postgraduate Summer Shows ending the season.

Postgraduate students delve deeply into their subjects, frequently challenging conventions, and provoking thought and debate. The Postgraduate Summer Shows celebrate this enquiry, providing a platform for new and wide-ranging work that is at the respective boundaries of the disciplines involved. This is an opportunity to witness an exciting way-point in the careers of a new contingent of creative practitioners presenting their ideas and concerns for perhaps the first time.

Students from the following courses will be displaying their work:

"Summer Show-time at AUB is one of the most energising and exciting experiences of our year. Join us throughout the summer months to be energised by the creative work of our fabulous students from all over the world, including those studying on our Foundation course, our BA (Hons) programmes and the Graduate School.

"We open our doors and welcome students and their families, alumni and industry, and thousands of visitors to share the magic and be part of the dream factory that is AUB."

– Professor Paul Gough, AUB Principal and Vice-Chancellor
