GEORGE TOWN: Students of Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Creative Multimedia from Han Chiang University College of Communication (HCUC) organized their graduation exhibition entitled ‘Luminous’ at Jetty 35 on 14 and 15 March 2020. 

The meaning of colours can vary depending on one’s  cultural and social circumstances. In order to allow the  people to learn more about the meaning of colours, the final year students  have decided to go with this concept as their theme for the graduation exhibition. They reached consensus after much deliberation on the many brainstorming sessions  and scrutinized each and every idea to choose the best theme for the exhibition.

“I felt that this color-themed exhibition is special to me. Well, I also hope that the students of Bachelor of Arts (Honour) Creative Multimedia can strive for a bright future after graduating.
