Liverpool Sound City exhibit opportunity for Fine Art studentsThursday 7 April 2016
Fine Art students have the opportunity to showcase their talents at Liverpool Sound City thanks to a collaborative project with Hope.
The music and arts festival attracts large audiences, well-known performers and delegates from the music industry.
Held across two days, the event also features an International Music and Digital Business Conference, where students are invited to exhibit their work.
For the third year, Hope has collaborated with the festival to provide Level I Fine Art students with the chance to compete to have their designs printed on large format banners that will adorn fencing near to the main stage.
Professional Tutor in Fine and Applied Art Tony Smith said: “The students have already made a visit to the site with representatives from Liverpool Sound City, and plan to use aspects of the area’s rich history, architecture and recent development as inspiration for their works in print.”
Participants will have to pitch their ideas to a panel from Liverpool Sound City’s operations and design department, with six students selected for inclusion in this year’s exhibition.
Sitting on the panel is Hope alumnus Dominic Foster, who studied Fine Art at the University and is now Head of Design at Sound City.
Last year’s competition saw students work with stage design company Stax Creations, and led to one of the winners helping to design a stage for the 2015 festival.
