Celebrating 15 Years of Screentest

Friday, September 27th, 2019

This year marks the 15th anniversary of Screentest: The National Student Film Festival, making it the longest-running fest of its kind. For the occasion, the School of Design has inaugurated an exhibition showcasing the achievements of students and their works in 15 years of Screentest.

Screentest: The National Student Film Festival in 2017, Stockwell St. Building, University of Greenwich

Screentest is a platform for promoting and exhibiting young filmmaking talent across the UK. The annual weekend event features industry workshops and panels. The highlight of the festival is the Award Ceremony (of course!) which is like the Oscars – only it’s on a student budget! It was founded at Bristol University in 2004 and relocated to London in 2011 where it enjoyed another 5 brilliant years at London Southbank University. It is now part of the University of Greenwich. The nest iteration of the festival will be held in Stockwell Street’ School of Design on 15/16 November 2019.

Our Project Space is currently hosting a selection of films and posters celebrating the talent of the students who have have been awarded Screentest Prizes in previous years.

Fast Forward to the Analogue: Vintage Immersions

Tuesday, June 25th, 2019

Fast Forward to the Analogue: Vintage Immersions explores analogue choices in present-day artistic practice.

The analogue is often presented as what preceded the digital. However, the revival of analogue techniques and aesthetic bears witness to a range of practices that operate past the mere opposite of digital technologies. The exhibition examines how those choices are embedded within an interdisciplinary framework.

Launching on the evening of Tuesday 2nd July at the University of Greenwich Galleries’ Project Space, this exhibition invites artists and researchers from different disciplines to respond to the notion of the analogue as a concept and/or practice.

Works by Mihalis Arfaras, Patrick Beveridge, Eleanor Dare, Carla Garcia, Jim Hobbs, Andrew Knight-Hill, Gabriel Menotti, Dani Ploeger, Audrey Samson, Systaime, Michael Talbot, and extracts from the Cinemathèque Française.


Exhibition extended until Tuesday 3 September 2019.


Curated by Elena Papadaki.

​Exhibition Launch:
Tuesday 2nd July, 6-9 pm | Free| All welcome

For Walls with Tongues

Monday, April 8th, 2019

This exhibition of street murals from 1966 to 1985 reveals the influence of muralists on the expansion of art in public spaces since the 60s and presents their lives and experiences through oral history. It celebrates the history of the mural movement in the United Kingdom and its influence on 20th-century culture, largely overlooked by the art establishment and historians.

In 1960s Britain, artists produced a profusion of street murals that became a backdrop for local celebrations, encouraging a sense of place and expressing local pride. Many muralists saw their work as part of the wider Community Arts movement, using their skills to facilitate social reform and develop radical alternatives to Gallery Art. At around the same time, external murals were appearing across the world. In the USA, in particular, neighbourhood murals gave voice to people’s aspirations.

For Walls with Tongues is compiled and curated by Greenwich Mural Workshop, a seminal arts organisation based in Greenwich.

Open 10 May – 2 June 2019 | Monday to Sunday, 10 am – 5 pm

Free seminar: Tuesday 14 May, 1 pm – 5 pm | Reserve your place here

The seminar will include presentations by artists who pioneered this form of street art followed by a discussion.

An exhibition by:

Stephen Lobb & Carol Kenna of Greenwich Mural Workshop

Rib Davis – oral history

Ben Wiedel-Kaufman – researcher

Volunteer interviewers: Maya Finkelstein Amrami, Dr Hazel Atashroo, Catherine Ireland Farren, Emma Middleton-Stirling.
