Each individual  project is intended to be viewed on line as  a digital interactive factual news based narrative. The students are also involved in an on-going intervention,  a ‘Brexhibition’ in the F block Gallery at UWE Bower Ashton until Friday 10th March, creating a thirty foot long full body portrait of Boris and Farage.

Senior lecturer in Illustration, Gary Embury adds, “Art Spiegelman said ‘When governments go bad, Art gets good.’ In the wake of a very good but pessimistic Policy and Politics Lecture this week at Bristol University by Will Self on the end of Champagne Socialism, it seems the only thing to look forward to is possibly good Art.”
