Working in collaberation with the Dreamland Heritage Trust, the CSVA End of Year Show titled ‘Bright Young Things’ marked the end of the academic year and showcased the brilliant work of the Art & Design students.

Crowds gathered at the private viewing in Canterbury which kicked off with a spectacular catwalk show, innovatively captured by the photography tutors and staff, showcasing amazing designs by Fashion and Textiles students.

The catwalk show featured a vibrant backdrop, adorned with hundreds of fabric flowers that were upcycled and handmade by students across all departments in the College.


Ben Kidger, Head of Visual Arts, said: "After three years of not being able to conduct the students end of year in the way we wanted due to the pandemic, this year CSVA were back with a bang! Hundreds of our students' supporters, friends, and families joined TV personalities, politicians, principals to celebrate the creative endeavours at their End of Year Show Private View.Selected ‘Bright Young Things’ CSVA students will continue to show their work in venues in Canterbury over the summer, as well as featuring in the ‘DreamSenses’ exhibition at Dreamland Margate as part of their summer exhibition.
