Graduate Showcase 2021

Hundreds of graduating University of Dundee students will showcase their creativity and innovation when the Art, Design and Architecture Graduate Showcase 2021 goes live in June.

The Graduate Showcase is an online exhibition taking place in the absence of the annual Degree Show, which is unable to be presented due to the uncertainty of public health restrictions.

The Graduate Showcase 2021 celebrates the extensive achievements of the graduating students from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design and the department of Architecture within the School of Social Sciences.

The launch event will be broadcast live online at 6pm on Friday 11 June for students, staff, families, friends, alumni and guests.

The Graduate Showcase will be accompanied by a range of events, including hearing from University alumni about their experiences and achievements after graduation, running until Monday 21 June.

The online exhibition was first trialled last year amid the coronavirus pandemic, with more than 18,000 people from around the world visiting the website, including employers, funders, curators and others who went on to offer opportunities to graduates.

Professor Anita Taylor, Dean of Duncan of Jordanstone, said, “Our graduates represent the future of the creative and cultural sectors, and the future of society more widely.

“They have continued to produce excellent work in the most challenging of circumstances that have affected them this academic year and last. 

“I very much hope you will support our graduates in their admirable achievements and will enjoy exploring the 2021 Graduate Showcase online.”

The Art, Design and Architecture Graduate Showcase 2021 will be available to view online from 11 June at www.dundee.ac.uk/graduate-showcase.
