The Global Design Graduate Show is returning for a second year to celebrate all art and design students, undergraduate and postgraduate, graduating in 2021. To take part in the 2021 showcase, Artsthread is calling on all art and design students graduating in the Academic Year 2020-21, October 2020 to July 2021 in any related creative discipline, located anywhere in the world.

The showcase, launched by Artsthread in response to the Covid-19 pandemic canceling end of year graduate showcases in 2020, is again teaming up with Gucci to highlight graduate talent.

Students have until August 31 to upload their end-of-year projects onto the Artsthread platform. Organisers are suggesting that the creative portfolio also features the personal creative journey, whether by photo or film, with a short self-curated Instagram stories style film to introduce the work “in your own words and visuals”.
