Now in its fourth year, Friends of the Show has become an established programme through which businesses have raised thousands of pounds to support the Art & Design and Architecture Degree.

By joining the scheme, Friends provide invaluable support to graduating artists and designers as they launch their extraordinary creative talent into the world. Friends also play a key part in helping to attract new visitors to Dundee’s vibrant cultural community, their business profile benefitting by association with emerging new talent from the University of Dundee. Being a Friend of the Show is also an opportunity for businesses and Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design to work together and has resulted in exciting collaborations between businesses and the College.

The 2021 Degree Show will be celebrated online and the Graduate Showcase will open with a live stream event on Friday 11th June.


The showcase is a wonderful visual collection of inspirational and thought-provoking work.
