What's new from our community?
New student webcomic released
The Promise is an annual student webcomics project at Falmouth. Course leader for MA Illustration, Hugh Frost, gave us some context to the work.
“The Illustration Research Symposium is being hosted at Falmouth this year, and the theme is TRANSITUS: Illustration as Crossing Ground’.
“With this in mind, all works were made with notions of crossings, evolutions, passings and other related themes at their core. For the first time this year the project also saw participation from students at KASK in Belgium.”

Moth & Dust exhibition
Senior Lecturers in Graphic Design Ashley Rudolph and Nikki Salkeld have created a new exhibition on death and grief: MOTH | AN EXTRA PLACE AT THE TABLE.
AN EXTRA PLACE AT THE TABLE is an exhibition and installation by designers Nikki Salkeld and Ashley Rudolph who run the death and grief design project MOTH. They are working with DUST (Lucy Willow, Senior Lecturer Fine Art) to create an installation An Extra Place at The Table in the shop which invites audience to consider someone absent they would set a place at the table for.
As the creators explain, “Through food and funeral feasting rituals, the bereaved can be comforted in the knowledge that this life defining moment, which we typically prepare for the least, can feel purposeful and positive, empowering us to take control and create the best and most personal ‘goodbye’ for loved ones.”
When? 9 July - 27 August
Where? 4-5 Albert Buildings, Penzance, TR18 2DB
Arts Council Grant for lecturer
Kathryn Broad, Associate Lecturer in Drawing, has just been awarded the DYCP Grant, an Arts Council Grant that supports individuals who are cultural and creative practitioners and want to take time to focus on their creative development.
The grant will be used to fund a seven-week Residency for Kathryn at DrawInternational France, an organisation that focuses on the development of artists practice in relation to drawing through Research and Academia.
Dessin heureux Kathryn!
Students smash summer awards
This summer has seen reams of success for Falmouth’s students at awards ceremonies up and down the country. From our Games Academy students crushing it at the Rookies to Interior Design students dominating the shortlists at Interior Educators, it’s been wonderful to see our creative community being recognised for its excellence.
