Who this event is for

  • Everyone


The Glass Tank , Abercrombie Atrium , Headington Campus, Gipsy Lane site


A mixed media exhibition by students and staff from Oxford Brookes University’s Associate CollegePartnerships (ACPs): Reading College (part of Activate Learning) and Swindon College.

Inspired by innovations impacting on people and place from the past 150 years such as digital technology, scientific research and global consumerism, the artists and designers from the Foundation Degree in Creative Arts and Design Practice have explored a journey of discovery and re-imagining. 

This eclectic body of work asks questions, challenges assumptions and invites engagement and reflection.  

There will be a series of workshops led by the participating students taking place in the Glass Tank on Thursday 11 and Thursday 18 December. These will be based on the 150th anniversary theme and they are aimed at local sixth-form schools and college students.
