Another wild year!

Students from Dudley College’s Evolve campus are set for a second wild year at DZG!


A partnership between DZG and Evolve launched in Spring saw 44 Photographic and Graphic Design students put together amazing images for a series of posters spreading the message about our vital conservation work.   Their artwork culminated in a competition with cash prizes and winning images were displayed across site during Summer.   Head of Media and Communications, Jill Hitchman, said: “The project was a huge success and we were so impressed by the standard of work that we have set up a five-year programme with DZG-Evolve.  

“Now we have a whole new set of students and the programme is starting all over again!”

The project also includes Media students working on a series of animal-themed promotional videos.

Jill added: “This year we have extended the programme to include work by advanced Fashion and Textiles students, who will be putting together an exciting project in the New Year.   

“There’s a lot going on and we hope to have some more fabulous work to display across the site very soon.”
