What is IS?
IS is an acronym for idea showcase.
It is an annual two-week event where the four schools that form ideaschool come together and showcase the very best of their students' work. From the catwalk, to the gallery, the stage to the screen; all our mediums are represented by amazing student work. Come along to as many events as you can!
Each showcase is accompanied by
a special theme devised in-house - this
years events is known as the showcase
of light, with glowing phosphorescent posters, projection mapping and pearlescent tickets.

2012 | IS1
Physical Catalogue Only
2012, the launch of ideaschool.
The theme for this showcase was transit based, using split-flap aesthetics symbolising moving forward. Students were empowered by their new ideaschool brand and produced some stunning work.
2013 | IS2
Our second showcase - themed with bold colours, striking triangular polygons and 2 illustrated masks. More amazing work was produced by our gifted ideaschool students.
2014 | IS3
Low polygon sci-fi realms dominated the theme for this showcase and students were treated to a theatrical stereoscopic 3D display at the launch event - each student went on to produce some amazing work, yet again.
2015 | IS 15
Changing the naming of the showcase to better reflect the year it took place in, this showcase was themed with a surreal restaurant setting and served it's guests a range of compelling and diverse student work.
2016 | IS 16
The showcase of light - marking the 5th anniversary of the idea showcase, ideaschool pulled out all the stops and treated students to a visually intense projection mapping display, and provided glowing phosphorescent posters and pearlescent tickets.
The student events are set to be some of the best yet and we can not wait to see you there.
