Join XpoNorth in celebrating the opening of this year's festival at the Ironworks Venue in Inverness.

As part of the opening event for XpoNorth 2016, The Glasgow School of Art showcases new work from the current cohort of second year students on the BA (Hons) Fashion Design programme. The outfits will be presented by 16 models who were recruited at special open casting sessions in Inverness last month. 

Also at the opening evening the GSA’s Digital Design Studio will present a show reel of its world leading 3D Heritage Visualisation work including the Scottish Ten (created through their partnership with Historic Environment Scotland, the Centre for Digital Documentation and Visualisation) and the Mackintosh Building at the GSA. Meanwhile, work from the Masters in International Heritage Visualisation, Medical Visualisation, Serious Games & Virtual Reality and Sound for the Moving Image programmes will also be on show. Elsewhere in the festival three of the Serious Games & Virtual Reality students will present “Curvish” in the Technology and Gaming Playground (8th June, Eden Court).

The XpoNorth 2016 Opening Party is in association with The Glasgow School of Art and the Festival of Architecture.

In a new partnership this year we are delighted to be working with NorthHop, bringing a truly Highland taste to the event with: Spey Valley Brewery, Windswept Brewing Co, Cromarty Brewing Co, Wooha Brewing Co, Thistly Cross Cider, Dunnet Bay Distillers, Berry Good, Roots Soda Co and Brew Lab Coffee.
