Our partnership with Scotland’s most popular visitor
attraction, National Museum of Scotland, grew out of ‘Rip It Up’, a major
exhibition dedicated to Scottish pop music in 2018.
Edinburgh Napier tutors recruited students from relevant
courses to create an ‘interdisciplinary agency’ to create a campaign that would
support the exhibition.
‘Future Features’ looked at the future of Scottish pop
music, and involved students from Communications, Advertising & PR,
Television, Photography, Popular Music, Graphic Design and Journalism. The
campaign was nominated for a Best Collaboration award by Creative Edinburgh. The project culminated with ‘Rip It Up: Remixed’, a night of
Scottish pop music with a twist, featuring our very own music students.
'Time & Place' documented music fans' memories of iconic gigs and venues in Scotland, and involved over 30 Film and Television students. This
allowed our students to benefit from the experience of being involved in such
an integral piece of a major art exhibition.
What our partners say
“All our staff agreed that working with these students was such a pleasure. They were so committed and it was interesting to see how they were so enthusiastic and excited about the project but at the same time approached it very seriously. This [Rip It Up] was a really good project for all of us.”

What our students say
“Having the opportunity to work on a live project with a real budget, creating content from start to finish, and working with a team from different disciplines has been invaluable.
Collaborating with students from various disciplines has given me an experience which has helped dictate the role I want to pursue after leaving university. It has been great fun and taught me so many things you can’t get from a textbook.”
Joanne Frier, fourth-year Communications, Advertising & PR student, Future Features campaign
