Event info

Work by S5 and S6 pupils Lana Ferguson, Morgan Steele, Nicola Lyttle, Damilola Ganzallo, Alena Barr and Niamh Wright is showcased in Edition, the GSA's publication launched at undergraduate Open Day. They are among pupils from 18 schools across Glasgow and the West of Scotland who participated in a weekend workshop with the GSA’s Widening Participation team from which they submitted images to the Cover Collages competition.
The winning pieces by Lana, Morgan Nicola, Damilola, Alena and Niamh are included in “1/” - a special supplement within Edition - with Lana and Morgan having the additional accolade of being featured on the cover.
“The GSA publication collage project was a fantastic way for the young people to apply many of the concepts, processes and tools they have learned during the S5 10-week Portfolio Course,” explains Abdi Adam, a GSA graduate who now works as freelance illustrator and course tutor for the young people as they prepared for the competition. “It was a ‘live brief’ where they had to respond to a creative brief within a tight deadline. Building live projects into our curriculum at this early stage is a great way of preparing the students for transitioning into creative undergraduate degree programmes and having the opportunity to have their work included in a GSA publication is a great motivation for making interesting new work.”
All the collages can be seen on the GSA's Flickr site here.
