Event info

CHEAD: Engage - with Chair Linda Drew (GSA)

The aim of the conference is to investigate the contribution that art and
design can make in different areas of our society and how this may be picked
up in art school curricula. It will also compare developments at school
levels in the UK and their impact on higher education. Delegates will
further be invited to debate with our speakers how we can engage others in
what we can achieve and contribute.
In addition, we offer sessions for several of our networks that focus on
practical issues related to different aspects of art and design higher
