Creative talents unleashed for end-of-year exhibition

A fortnight of artistic talent is coming to West Nottinghamshire College as students from creative industries and digital technologies bring their end-of-year projects to a show-stopping finalé.

Starting on Tuesday (3 June) the music students’ showcase will feature live music, studio productions and original compositions. Students will also be putting together DJ sets and audio installations. People can hear a sample of their original soundtracks at www.createrecords.co.uk

Performing arts students will be putting their acting skills to the test at two shows.  The first show is Godspell which is being performed on Monday 9 and Tuesday 10 June at 1pm and 7pm. Set in New York City in the late 60s to early 70s, this rock-pop musical presents the gospel of St Matthew, with catchy songs to have the audience dancing in their seats.

The second performance is Road, taking the audience on a tour of a typical road in a deprived, working-class area of Lancashire. The play examines the struggles of the inhabitants of the road who are trying to survive. This comes to the Create Theatre on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 June at 1pm and 7pm.

Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.createtheatre.co.uk and students’ rehearsal pictures and conversations can be followed on Twitter @PerfArtsVWNC.

Between 11 and 20 June exhibitions and demonstrations from interactive media, computer science, graphic design, art and fashion and design, will be held in the college’s Create building at the Derby Road campus.

Work from students’ portfolios will be on display including 3D modelling, website design, fine art, fashion and textiles as well as photography and animation.

Students on the film and television production course will be doing a chat show interview with contributors to the final show as guests in the state-of-the art television studio.

Head of creative industries and digital technologies Steve McAlone said: “We’re all looking forward to the exhibition as it’s going to be a hive of activity.

“It’s the perfect opportunity for our students’ friends and families to join us and see the culmination of their hard work and we welcome the public to come along and see this work. We’re delighted to be inviting local school pupils along so they can see the kind of projects that they could be working on if they choose to come to college after school.”
