The students have organised, curated, planned and hung the display by themselves, as well as designing all the Marketing material, such as the exhibition poster and accompanying booklet, as part of the collaborative project for their HND programme.

The display includes documentary footage by Georgia Fernandez, 19, who was recently involved in an exciting project to create a film about the ‘Pilgrim’ illuminations for Selby District Council and Selby 950 as part of the 950th anniversary of Selby Abbey's foundation.
