Event details

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.
