A new generation of design and artistic talent is revealing its stand-out creations at the celebrated Edinburgh College of Art’s Graduate Show. Thousands of visually-arresting creations from 550 graduate students in the disciplines of Art, Music, Design, Architecture and Landscape Architecture will be on show at at the Main Building of Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) at Lauriston Place, with more than 6,000 works on its online hub, bringing them to a global audience.

This year’s portfolios draw on a range of influences and themes, including solutions for sustainable design, ideas for a changing world, and visual explorations of human feeling and emotion. From a technical perspective, they reflect the spectrum of training in creative disciplines on offer across ECA, including painting and drawing, sculpture and installation, architectural planning and modelling, animation and digital visualisation, musical composition and performance, film, photography, textiles, jewellery and interior design. 

As well as the array of exhibits at ECA’s Main Building, the Show also features a series of events, including screenings and live performances, including a concert at the Reid Concert Hall on 5th June, airing works by graduating students from the School of Music, and the Wee Red bar, on the Lauriston Campus, will be hosting a gig by music students on 6th June. Designs from ECA fashion students will grace the runway at two catwalk shows at the National Museum of Scotland on Friday 7th June.

The ECA Graduate Show 2024 will be open Friday 31 May to Sunday 9 June, 10am to 5pm, with late night opening until 8pm on Wednesday 5 and Thursday 6 June.
