The Creative and Cultural Skills National Conference took place on April 1st 2019 at City Hall, Cardiff.  A team from New College, comprising staff Karen Pau and Dan Hazelton, Artist Facilitator Katie Ackrill and student Megan Raine, were exhibiting artwork from the 14-18 NOW Make Art Not War project.  

This exciting initiative, run as part of the World War 1 centenary art commissions project and led by contemporary artist Bob and Roberta Smith, invites students to create new work across a range of media in response to the bold provocation, ‘What does peace mean to you?’ Over 100 New College students from a range of artistic and creative disciplines have been involved in the project, with support from artist and former student Katie Ackrill.

New College Swindon's contribution to the exhibition included a collection of Cicatrix outcomes: a sound waves great coat; a WW1 Wilts Regiment Remembrance coat; gas hoods and framed pieces as well as a 'Peace Branding' graphics submission.
