Art & Design

The art world is vibrant and energetic and demands people who are not only talented but who are good networkers, fiercely determined, able to work as a collective and business savvy.

Traditional artistic roles such as painter, illustrator, sculptor or photographer have broadened to include digital routes such as graphic designer, web designer or animator as well as product and technical design, craft work and textile designers.

You’ll work on live projects and commissions out in industry through our exclusive partnerships with some of the region’s top cultural and arts organisations including BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Wild in Art, and creative agencies such as Kuro Dragon and Surreal.
