The prestigious Linbury Prize, the UK’s only nationwide award for emerging design talent, is awarded every two years and supports designers to develop a sustainable career in the creative industry.
All five RWCMD designers embody the spirit of training across the College, embracing collaboration, and a fearless approach to taking their art into new places, exploring the space and its relationship with an audience to challenge and engage.
Sean Crowley, Head of Design and Director of Drama is passionate about making the Design for Performance course as accessible as possible, encouraging people who wouldn’t normally think of studying at a conservatoire to apply.
‘The course is very much about doing. It’s a hands-on practical course and if you're artistic and have a passion for collaboration and making then it could be the right course for you.’
Their work is showcased at the Linbury Prize for Stage Design Exhibition, which opened on 13th November the National Theatre, London, and is on until 30th March next year.
