Three students from Bedford College have been selected to exhibit their work at Origins Creative Arts Festival at the Truman Brewery this month.

Eva Cringle, Lia Fairhead and Lauren Sullivan are all studying Level 3 Art and Design at Bedford College and their exhibited work incorporates fine art illustration, photography and graphic design.

The students’ work was among more than 360 submissions for the festival.

Origins Creative Arts Festival is organised by UAL Awarding Body and provides art lovers, critics and industry professionals from the creative sector, the chance to take a first look at and meet creative talent from across the UK.

The festival is open to the public from 26 July and is expected to attract thousands of visitors over the three days.

Entertainment at the festival includes guest speakers, performance tie-ins with Barbican Box and an awards ceremony where the top work across each subject area is selected.

Ross Anderson, Director of the UAL Awarding Body, said: “Origins Creative Arts Festival offers students the significant opportunity to exhibit their work.”

It gives them a moment in time where they can experience what it is like to be an arts professional.”
