Prelude Exhibition

Video created by Korina John

The Prelude exhibition is a collection of works from twenty nine students in Level six of the Bachelor of Creative Practice at Ideaschool. This exhibition is a preparation for the final year of the degree, and an introduction to the professional creative process.

As such, the word prelude was chosen to reflect this state of beginning: an introduction to something greater, be it the final year of the degree or future careers as creative practitioners.
