Gower College Swansea learners step into the spotlight at Creative Futures event

Gower College Swansea hosted an exciting Creative Futures event on Thursday 23 March, bringing together fashion, hair and makeup and music in a showcase. The event took place at Tycoch Campus and was attended by pupils from Bishop Gore School, College learners, parents and guests. 

The event was a collaborative effort between learners from different areas of the College.  
Production Arts students set the stage and controlled the sound and lighting, while Hair and Makeup students prepared the models for the catwalk. Music Performance students impressed the audience with a showcase of original material and Art and Design students displayed their sustainable fashion garments created from waste denim, as well as exhibiting some of their final art pieces and winning Skills Competition Wales entries.

Additionally, attendees were given an opportunity to take part in taster workshops in each of the areas and consider what a career in each industry might look like with creative careers talks. 

“This exciting event provided an opportunity for creative learners from across the College to work together as they would in industry and showcase their skills, giving them a ‘real world’ experience of their chosen sector,” said Elinor Franklin, Art and Design Curriculum Leader who organised the event. 

“The creative industries are thriving in Wales and it’s a thrilling time to be embarking on a creative career! Learners at the College have many opportunities to work with artists, designers and creative practitioners to support them with their next steps. 

“Experiences like this are invaluable to support their progression choices. The event also brought together some of our Skills Competition Wales finalists including two gold medal winners! There will be further opportunities to see work from our visual arts learners during our series of exhibitions in June.”
