WMC Camden College student selected to exhibit at Origins Creative Arts Festival
WMC Camden College student Niall White is one of a select number of students from across the UK to have his creative work exhibited at the recent Origins Creative Arts Festival which was held at the Truman Brewery.
Fashion Design and Photography student Niall’s submission titled ‘Victorian, Lady Botanist Explorers’ caught the attention of UAL Awarding Body’s curators who had received over 360 submissions for the festival.
Origins Creative Arts Festival is organised by Awarding Organisation UAL Awarding Body and provides art lovers, critics, industry professionals from the creative sector, the chance to meet original 14-18 creative talent from across the UK.
The festival showcased creative works in fashion, performing arts and music to sculpture, fine art and creative media from some of the UK’s most talented students at schools and FE institutions taking pre-degree creative arts subjects.
Origins gave a unique first look at these as-yet-unseen future stars of the creative scene. The exhibition was open to the public and attracted over a thousand visitors during the three days. With entertainment on site, the programme included an awards event to select the top work across each subject area, guest speakers, and performance tie-ins with Barbican Box.
Ross Anderson, Director, UAL Awarding Body said: “Origins Creative Arts Festival offers students the significant opportunity to exhibit their work. It gives them a moment in time where they can experience what it is like to be an arts professional.”
