It was a huge honour for Nelly to give the graduation speech at the @glasgowschoolart today for their winter graduation ceremony!! The success of the 2021 cohort of Glasgow School of Art Masters students was celebrated on 9 December, at the first in-person Graduation ceremony since lockdown. The students were awarded their degrees in a ceremony that took place at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

 “It is my greatest honour to join the students and their family in what is a very special moment.” Says Dr Nelly Ben Hayoun “This ceremony also marks the start of new beginnings and I am looking forward to seeing the bold, courageous and unique work they will create in the years to come. I will do my best to prompt and call for radical imagination, and aim to inspire ‘thinking in action’. I am so thrilled to meet them all, thank you for having me!’.
