New site to give students a Hand

A group of Kingston students led by Joshua Lake are launching an online exhibition space to bring together work from degree shows across the creative disciplines

A group of Kingston students led by Joshua Lake are launching an online exhibition space to bring together work from degree shows across the creative disciplines

 

With so many degree shows taking place each year, not all of them get the attention those participating might like. Lake’s idea is to create an online exhibition space to aggregate work from degree shows in one place.

Hand launches in May and is “an online art and design gallery catering for students, individuals and groups across all art disciplines, creating space for inspiration, collaboration and discovery,” the organisers say.

At present, the site is displaying a ‘trailer’ version but this does give some sense of how the fully-functional site will work. It will focus initially on degree shows but “in addition to student exhibitions, non-student shows will be featured on the site throughout the year,” the organisers say.

 

Graduating students will be allowed to create an account and upload work from their exhibition to the site. More details on how to get involved at hand.gallery
