Art and design degree shows 2020

2020 art and design degree show guide

With UK degree shows called off this summer, we’ve put together a list of undergraduate art and design showcases taking place online

The coronavirus pandemic has brought about the closure of university and college campuses across the country, as well as the mass cancellation of degree shows for art and design students.

However, many colleges, universities and student collectives around the UK have pulled together virtual showcases instead, meaning there is no shortage of opportunities to uncover emerging creative talent from across the country. In fact, with this year’s digital approach, it means it’s easier than ever to step outside our geographical bubbles and discover new creatives from further afield.

Below we’ve listed links to virtual undergraduate shows taking place online over the next couple of months, with dates shown where available. There are more virtual shows in the pipeline so we’ll be updating this list on a rolling basis. If your BA degree show or one you know of hasn’t been shown here, please let us know through social media or email a member of the editorial team so we can add it in.
