Counting down and setting up

Time is tick in the lead up to the Final Year Degree Show 2014

With 5 days to go until the Private Viewing signifying the grand opening of the long awaited Degree Show, Monday 19th May saw the start of a very busy week for Final Year students of Fine Art, Creative Events and Music at the University of Kent.

As work progresses to get everything ready in time for the first (private) viewing of the Degree Show, fine artists, musician and creative events students are getting their work and performances ready.  Some have been marked already and many are still under assessment.

Fine Art work got hoisted to the magnificent Mezzanine floor of the Slip 3 at the Historic Dockyard Chatham, where the Degree Show final installations for the Fine Art students will be exhibited. View the I AM Present video of Day 1 here.

We managed to get some sneak previews of the work going up today, and chatting with the students, some of them reveal to us their inspirations for their work.

We will join the students later in the week for a final look at their exciting preparations.
