Isn’t the artistic talent of young people in Northern Ireland just amazing? We were left in no doubt when our business members visited UNIque, the new shop at Ulster University School of Art York Street campus as part of our Arts Uncovered series. Rachel Dickson, Associate Head School of Art, and Kevin McStravock, President Ulster University Students Union, talked to us about the background of the shop and explained the sales opportunity and commercial awareness that it brings to students and alumni who hope to make a career from their creativity. Current students were on hand to chat about their courses and how they hope their work will develop as they progress into the world of work. For those of us who are not blessed with such talent the shop presents an ideal opportunity to purchase really unusual and sometimes UNIque gifts of jewellery, ceramics, paintings and prints, greetings cards and homewares. The shop is also available as an event space for hire so drop in next time you need a gift or are planning an event and give your support to the School of Art.
