Audience for Suspensions begin their walk round King's Wood

An annual event in King’s Wood is the exhibition of new work by University for the Creative Arts students.

SVCP have worked with partner UCA from the outset, to provide an outdoor space that challenges their students to consider their art practice in a woodland environment and public space.  Sadly this year the exhibition will not go ahead – but students visited before the pandemic and were able to form their ideas that they can work with in more abstract conditions.
Below is a gallery of previous exhibitions.
