About this event

Edinburgh College of Art welcomes visitors to a showcase of work by graduating students.

Featuring work from the schools of Art, Design and Architecture & Landscape Architecture, we welcome visitors to discover and explore this new generation of creatives.

The Graduate Show 2022 website will launch alongside the physical show where you can explore and revisit the works of the students from this year.

This year's graduates have faced continued challenges across their studies, but they have met these head-on with creativity, intelligence, resilience and hope for the future. The show runs across 2 different venues in our Lauriston Campus. You can find the different schools as follows:

Evolution House - School of Design and Architecture & Landscape Architecture

Main Building - School of Art
