The third annual Collaborative Project Trade Fair filled The Spark atrium with an excellent showcase of our BA (Hons) Music Promotion and BA (Hons) Popular Music Journalism final year students’ major projects.

 

Music Promotion course leader Dr Chris Anderton:

‘This year’s Collaborative Project Trade Fair had a great venue in The Spark atrium, and the quality of the student work being presented was once again outstanding. Students from BA (Hons) Music Promotion and BA (Hons) Popular Music Journalism showcased their creative and entrepreneurial skills, as well as the benefits of networking across courses to create record companies, live and club promotion companies, print and online magazines, audio-visual content providers, and management and PR companies. This was the music business in microcosm, and demonstrated the benefits of students networking together across courses to produce fabulous outcomes.’
