Art and Design Summer Show

Nottingham Trent University’s Art and Design Summer Show is one of the UK’s largest free public exhibitions of creativity and innovation by over 1,300 graduating artists and designers, from 22 undergraduate courses across the School of Art & Design and the School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment.

2018 marks 175 years of art and design education here at Nottingham Trent University (NTU), since the formation of the Nottingham Government School of Design in 1843. Mindful of this heritage, and its impact on creativity and innovation, we take this moment to celebrate the next generation of artists and designers.

Spanning visual arts; visual communication; fashion, textiles and knitwear design; fashion management, marketing and communication; architecture and interiors; and furniture and product design, the Summer Show showcases a diverse and inspiring range of creative thinking and achievement.


Celebration event

Taking place on Friday 1 June, 5 pm – 9 pm our Celebration Event is a fantastic opportunity for creative professionals, friends and family to have the first glimpse of the work before it goes on show to the public from 2 – 10 June. Read more and reserve your place.
