The 2016 Media Communications and Culture Final Year Show, showcasing media practice projects produced by MCC finalists, opened yesterday (12th May) at the Media Building with a vibrant evening gala. It was great to see a big turnout for the event- a fantastic mix of finalists surrounded by family members, friends, staff and students from the Keele community. The event was opened by Dr Tim Lustig, Head of School of Humanities, who welcomed guests and congratulated students on the fine quality of the work on show. Tim thanked Terry Bolam (MCC Technical Coordinator) and Sam Galantini (MCC Technician), in particular, for their tireless work over the past few weeks assisting students in putting together the exhibition and for their general contribution to the programme. Big congratulations and thanks also to Mandy McAteer and James McAteer who supervised many of student projects and coordinated organisation of the exhibition.
The evening also featured a fantastically well attended (full house!) screening of films produced by MCC finalists. For me, having supervised the film projects, seeing the students introduce and present their films to a full house was a moment to cherish.
Congratulations, once again, to our final year students on putting together such a great show. It was a brilliant evening!
The exhibition continues until 28th August (Monday-Friday, 10AM-3PM) at the Media Building, Keele University. Please visit to see an eclectic mix of visual art, installations and films produced by our students. We would be delighted to welcome you!
Note: The theory-practice mix of Keele’s MCC programme offers final year students the possibility of producing either an independent media project (presented in the final year show) or a research dissertation. We will shortly be showcasing some very good research dissertations produced by our 2016 finalists in a series of posts for this blog.
