Manchester Metropolitan Art & Design Show Promotional Video

I was recently browsing through my old uni’s website and on their main page is a video promoting the annual Art and Design show. They seem to have used footage from last year’s show (not the most recent, but the one I took part in) and I was pleased to see some of my own work featured in it! You can view the video below, or just visit the Manchester Metropolitan Website and view the video titled “Art & Design Show”.
