The POSSE (Preserve Our Student Shows for Eternity) initiative aimed to save student degree shows for posterity and to provide long term access to them through the VADS website. Students put a great deal of time, effort and in many cases, money, into producing their final Degree Shows, aiming them not only at examiners, lecturers and their peers, but also at an audience of prospective employers, commissioners, journalists and enthusiasts. With students at all levels in tertiary education increasingly documenting their end of year shows in digital media, VADS undertook POSSE to provide not only a record of UK visual arts educational output, but the variations & creative practices evolving in its digital documentation.
