Two School of Music and Fine Art graduates from the BA (Hons) Event & Experience Design (formerly Creative Design & Production), played key roles the production of Day of the Dead Parade at carnival of the macabre, Dia Del Los Muertos as part of the Alexandra Palace Fire Show on 4th & 5th November.
Musician/Creative Producer/Performance Artist Kerri Layton directed the Day of the Dead Parade and Holly Greenhall was the production manager.
Another graduate, Charlotte Harding, volunteered to work on the shows alongside current students, 3rd years Elise Berdah, Kylie Lee, Shushi Wong and 1st years Lauren Thynne and Sophia Going.
Deputy Head of School Peter Hatton, Programmes Director for Event and Experience Design, Event and Experience Management, and Fine Art commented, “The programme has been running for ten years, and I am increasingly being sent opportunities for work experience from graduates who are working in the events industry in various areas, freelancers like Kerri and Holly through to event designers with marketing and branding agencies. This is a very exciting development for current students, being able to work alongside former students is inspiring and extrely informative.”
