The MA Narrative Environments 2020 graduates from Central Saint Martins UAL will soon present their final projects in a digital showcase. Before the show begins, we share some of the stand-out projects from this year's class. Expect projects exploring various environmental issues, topics of race and colonialism and provoking questions around London's shrinking LGBTQIA+ scene.

Yaatzil Ceballos Fernandez created Watershrines, a series of installations placed along the towpath of Regent's Canal in London. Starting at the junction with Pirate castle and ending next to Camden Street bridge, the installations aim to encourage a new care for water among the commuters who travel along the water's edge each day.

Dino ShiYong Zhao's A Little Bird Told Me also takes place outdoors. The nature tour invites members of the public to learn more about herring gulls and see how they survive in urban settings. Held at the Woodberry Wetlands, the tour seeks to encourage people to support nature conservation in and around London.

Sara Coppa and Paolo di Gennaro collaborated on the Rooting Failure project which is inspired by Jules Verne's Journey to the Centre of the Earth. The interactive installation seeks to challenge our perception of failure. Set in the Crypt Gallery, the target audience of the show is 20-35 year olds who may be struggling with societal pressures to be perfect and succeed at all costs.

Motherland to Fatherland by Shrutika Jain explores the life of London-based Anglo-Indian families who were forced to migrate due to the Partition of the Indian subcontinent in the 40s. The aim of the work is to celebrate and share the stories of the members of the community who experienced the partition first hand, and for visitors to reflect on Britain's colonial history.

Lucy Hayhoe's Queer(ing) Space asks why so many LGBTQIA+ nightlife spaces keep closing down in London. Taking place in the Deptford Does Art space in East London, the exhibition also seeks to encourage conversations and activism within the community to create and maintain new queer spaces.

The impact of the aviation industry on our environment is explored in Eunbi Kim's Dystopian Flight. A multi-sensory project, Dystopian Flight visualises the amount of carbon dioxide emitted during a flight, making the issue more tangible to members of the public.
