'Through Our Eyes' exhibition

Through Our Eyes is a joint art exhibition which celebrates TUS student creativity and explores the third level student experience as told through the eyes of our students. This is an opportunity for TUS students to share their unique perspectives and their own lived experience of third level through a variety of creative media.

Students from all disciplines in TUS are invited to submit proposals which may encompass examples of: fine art, design, animation, performance, fashion, the written word, music and socially engaged art practice. A selection of work will be shortlisted for exhibition.

Note to students:

You don’t have to be an artist/designer/musician to submit an application; TUS students are multi-talented and may be engaged in other academic studies as well as being creative in their own right! Both individual and group submissions are warmly welcomed!
