MULTIPLICITYThis exhibition comprises work produced by level 6 students enrolled on the BA (Hons) Creative Industries (Photography) course at the University of South Wales.All of the work on display was created for their final major projects. Students like these are expected to navigate their way through two considerable changes within the space of nine months. Having successfully completed their Foundation Degree in Creative Industries (Photography) at one of our partner colleges, they join us to complete a third year of study in order to graduate with a BA (Honours) degree. Coming to Cardiff from what may be small villages and towns with tightly-knit communities can present a challenge, in addition to those set by the rigours of final-year undergraduate study. They have handled their transition to Cardiff with determination, good humour and grace, and have made some fresh and original work along the way. The next - and imminent - change for this class will be to leave the staff and their new friends at USW in order to make their way in the wider world. Some will set up their own businesses, while others will travel, embark on postgraduate study, or move into employment. Cardiff is a thriving hub of creative activity and opportunities for bright and talented graduates, a city where there is space for all to flourish and succeed. There is no doubt in our minds that these practitioners will soon be doing exactly that. It has been a pleasure to work with them since last September, and we wish them well as they embarkon the next stage of their journey.CELIA JACKSONSENIOR LECTURER, PHOTOGRAPHYUNIVERSITY OF SOUTH WALESCome along to the launch, enjoy the wide range of photography, chat to some of the students about their work and help yourself to some homemade nibbles.
