IGNITE Festival of Creativity | University of Plymouth

IGNITE Festival of Creativity | 26 May - 25 June

The IGNITE Festival of Creativity is an iMayflower funded project to support arts focused final degree show activity across the University of Plymouth and Plymouth College of Art.

During 2020 we developed a digital platform to showcase arts graduates and provide opportunities to network and gain commissioned work from industry partners.

Building on its success, this year we are supporting an expanded scope of activity including streamed performances, exhibitions, installations, projections and other pop-up activity taking place on campus and within the city.
