We are rapidly approaching 2022 MMU Degree show, featuring the work of hundreds of students across Art, Design and Media, and will be open to the public from Saturday 11th June until Wednesday 22nd June.  

We absolutely love a degree show as they are great way to see new talent and new work from Manchester’s University. This year the shows identity has been created by 2018 BA (Hons) Textiles in Practice graduate Daisy James, a visual storyteller whose work encompasses graphics, installations, publications and public art. We will be there at the launch to see al the work!
