“This is a collaboration of reciprocity and shared generosity between Swansea College of Art and local galleries that demonstrates the layers of Swansea’s vibrant art scene,” said speaker Alex Duncan.

“Mission Gallery, Elysium, Glynn Vivian and GS Studios have all supported graduates in many ways and understood that art schools provide a space to question, debate and collaborate.

“A place where work in progress has the chance to stop and be considered, rather than rushed. A site where hands-on learning and experimentation can flourish.

“It is a celebration not just of Swansea College of Art at UWTSD, but a recognition of the current value and relevance of art schools across the UK, where in some cases their very existence is threatened.”
