The Graduates 2017 is our annual showcase of the UK’s undergraduate creative talent and next Wednesday 5 July, we will reveal the chosen Graduates at a one-off private party.
The evening’s event is supported by our sponsor A/D/O – a creative space based in Brooklyn, New York, founded by MINI, which is dedicated to exploring new boundaries in design.
This year’s 11 graduates have been hand-picked by the It’s Nice That team from over 1,000 applicants. Providing a glimpse into the UK’s burgeoning art and design industry, they represent the most original, innovative and exciting creative work being made right now.
Work from the final 11 will be exhibited at Our/London vodka distillery in Hackney Downs, where you’ll also get the chance to meet this super talented group. The party will be followed by a one-day It’s Nice That site takeover the next day (Thursday 6 July), where you can read interviews with each of our Grads.
Join us at 6pm to meet the class of 2017 and celebrate with a beer and slice of pizza on us. A limited number of tickets are available so please RSVP by 6pm Tuesday 4 July via the Eventbrite link below.
