A proposal submitted by BA Ceramics graduate Abigail Heath has been awarded an InSite Commission.

Proposals were submitted by graduates from across the country, following an online recruitment campaign in partnership with A-N, the artists information company. All proposals were then considered by a selection panel, this year consisting of Simon Taylor, Head of Learning at Ikon Gallery and Jane McArdle, Heritage Manager for Birmingham Cathedral.

Congratulations to Abigail.
