Last summer saw the launch of Festival60, a free festival hosted by art and design students at Reading College. The festival showcased students’ work in visual arts disciplines, music, dance and fashion. Further opportunities to celebrate work are available at the end of the year shows for furniture, photography, fashion and art and design.
We work closely with organisations to provide industry standard teaching, learning and progression opportunities for our students, including: Arts at the Old Fire Station, Reading Rep, CultureMix, William Hands, The Furniture Makers, Benchmark and Ercol.
You will have the opportunity to develop your employability skills by taking part in exhibitions, festivals and events, organising community workshops and pop-up shops. You will also gain new skills by taking part in competitions, attending masterclasses and career talks, and responding to live briefs set by employers.
