Cover image: 2018 Degree Shows

Degree show season is just around the corner (in fact, if you're in Clare you can catch the last day of the Burren School of Art show today...), so we've begun compiling details on as many showcases from every creative discipline we can think of in every institution we know of in every corner of the country. We've got 23 to begin with, but expect this list to grow as we keep updating it in the coming weeks. Just like last year, we list shows by county (but starting with Dublin, cos we're insufferable like that) and in chronological order, so you can plan your visits accordingly. Is your show missing? Then tell us!
