Creative educator boomsatsuma is showcasing students work with an innovative street poster exhibition on Bristol hoardings.
The talents of Creative and Digital Media level 3 extended diploma students, from year 13, will be on display from Jan 25th, as boomsatsuma, once again gets ‘street cred’, overcoming pandemic challenges and restrictions.
Education for boomsatsuma’s creative students continued undisrupted throughout lockdown tiers and shutdowns, as boomsatsuma swiftly implemented and maintained Covid-19 safe processes. However, it was clear that any public exhibitions of student works would not be viable due to pandemic restrictions.
Photography course lead at boomsatsuma, Samuel Fordham, enthuses:
“It’s exciting for our students to see their creativity displayed in one of Bristol’s most prominent locations, opposite Temple Meads station. During previous years’ students have been able to showcase their works in public exhibitions, but with all venues shutdown, we’re sharing their artwork for the people of Bristol to enjoy.
“We briefed students to create images using photography, graphics or design, responding to the theme of representation, stimulating students to choose issues that speak to their generation. I’m very proud of the results and look forward to seeing them in the giant poster format, encompassing subject matter ranging from race, genre, climate change, to body image.
“We are currently interviewing for our first intake of students for our new Documentary Photography and Print (BA Hons) degree, and the standard of work we’re seeing here bodes well for the talent looking to forge ahead with their education towards a career in photography.”
To precede the exhibition a series of posters have appeared as an ‘In Bristol You Can’ campaign, with an eye-catching poster installation opposite the students’ Engine Shed location; highlighting Bristol’s flourishing creative industries. boomsatsuma is providing strong education pathways, recently launching six new degrees leading into creative careers in film, television, games art and VFX and acting, working in close partnerships with industry partners*.
