Rock Star inspired STEAM Fashion project Launched!

The College of Jewellery, Fashion and Textiles at Birmingham City University (BCU) is inviting staff and students across the University to participate in a collaborative project hosted by MA Fashion and Textiles Designers, supported by STEAMhouse. This year the innovative results of Term 2 collaborative projects will culminate in an exciting Hybrid Reality STEAM Fashion Prototype Exhibition in the Parkside building of BCU on 9th of May 2024.

This year’s collaborative exhibition motto is ‘Cactus World Views’, inspired by ‘The Joshua Tree.’ The infamous album by the Irish rock band U2 serves as an emotional reminder of the continuing need for responsible creative work, particularly in times of global challenges. We’re inviting students to challenge creative design problems, reflect on current social, spiritual, experiential, and collaborative issues and explore these themes in real and virtual spaces.

This exhibition is building on the fantastic history of students demonstrating themselves as innovative thinkers capable of responsibly integrating science and the arts, known as STEAM, here at BCU. STEAM is about providing the collaboration, cooperation, experimentation and radical openness to encourage people to develop new innovation solutions, working through the lens of Creativity and STEM to solve problems and inspire. This exhibition is set to be perfect example of STEAM principles and innovation.
