Students at the Royal College of Art (RCA) present RCA2023, a series of exhibitions and events across the College’s Battersea and Kensington campuses, at the Truman Brewery in East London, and online here as a digital discovery platform.

Encompassing over 2,400 postgraduate students across the RCA’s four schools – Architecture, Arts & Humanities, Communication and Design – as well as our Intelligent Mobility Design Centre students, RCA2023 features an international cohort of emerging artists, designers, architects and creative practitioners.
