About me

Stephen Monger has worked in higher education for over 15 years, and holds a 0.6 position in the School of Design at UWE. His position as Programme Leader for MA Graphic Arts brings him into contact with a broad and diverse range of highly motivated postgraduate students from Europe and beyond. Through the university’s franchise arrangements his experience at this level is also shared at partner organisations like Alexander College in Cyprus. He also works on the high achieving BA(Hons) Graphic Design course.

He practices as an artist working predominately with photography, but other mediums too. He has received a number of awards and commissions, including a commission to explore 3D printing from The Pheonix Gallery, Exeter (2012), a residency in Harghita County, Transylvania (2005), being short-listed for the Tate St. Ives residency (2004) and being selected for EAST International, Norwich by the American artist Lawrence Weiner (2002).

Previous solo projects include: 'Urban Documents' which was shown at The Architecture Centre, Bristol (2006), The Lighthouse Glasgow (2006), and The Solent Centre for Architecture & Design, Winchester (2007); and 'Switches and Other Works' at Nottingham Castle (2004), Folly Gallery Lancaster (2004), the Biennial VIII, Lisbon, Portugal (2004), and ImagoLucis Fotogaleria, Porto, Portugal (2003). He has also exhibited in numerous group shows.

Since 2011 he has worked as a consultant for The Open University Validation Services, and in 2012 joined the Visual Communications staff at The Open College of the Arts. In this role, he is involved in writing open learning degree courses and teaching through blended learning approaches. In 2014 he was appointed a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and in 2015 became external examiner for BA (Hons) Visual Communication and BA (Hons) Fine Art for the University of Chester.

He first started teaching at UWE in 2003.
