Sunderland Students prepare for Photography Exhibition
Written by Scott McGerty on 2nd May 2018
University of Sunderland 3rd Year Photography students open their final degree show exhibition on 15th June 2018.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for the emerging photographers graduating from the University of Sunderland to showcase their undoubted talents,” said Noura Petridi, Exhibition Co-Ordinator.
The exhibition, Lux, opens on Friday 15th June 2018 at 6.00pm at Priestman Building, University of Sunderland, 6 Green Terrace, Sunderland SR1 3PZ. The exhibition runs until Friday 22nd June 2018. Entry is free and the building is fully accessible, with lifts serving all floors.
“The students fund the staging of the exhibition, including producing exhibition catalogues, promotion and creating an exhibition website. Students also pay to produce their own work for the exhibition, which can be expensive, so it is a challenge to also fund the show. We would love the local community, and the wider creative arts community, to help us to fund this exciting and vibrant exhibition of incredible work.”
People can help to contribute in two ways: The first option is to buy raffle tickets, via donating, to win four Premier Enclosure tickets for Northumberland Plate Day at Newcastle Races, very kindly donated by the Newcastle Racecourse, on Saturday 30th June at: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/lux-exhibition
For every £2.50 donated, you receive an entry in to the draw to win the race day tickets. A fabulous way to help a great cause and win a fabulous day out! The second option is via the Kickstarter funding page at www.kickstarter.com/projects/1390430119/lux-exhibition-photography-degree-show
You can donate as little or as much as you wish. Alternatively, you can donate a set amount and select from a range of goodies to receive as a thank you for your support.
This exhibition will give students the opportunity to demonstrate their creativity, skills and talents to a wider audience. The exhibition will be a fantastic opportunity to network with other invited practitioners, artists and potential employers. It also allows students to include the skills and knowledge gained staging the exhibition within their CV, increasing their opportunities to gain future employment.
