This September I will be speaking in Ideas of revolt, the Graphic Design Educators’ Network 2017 Conference
Stationing ideas of revolt within contemporary graphic design education
Venue: Sheffield Institute of the Arts, Sheffield Hallam University
Dates: 7—8 September 2017
Ideas of Revolt will feature keynotes from Dr Rathna Ramanathan (Head of Visual Communication, RCA) and Matt Ward (Head of Design, Goldsmiths), plus two thematic strands curated by Alternative Art School (Dr Cathy Gale and students, Kingston University) and Alt/Shift (Derek Yates, Winchester School of Art) alongside workshops, discussions, papers and social events.
The political and social landscape of 2017 offers graphic design students ample rich subject matter to react to, dissect and interpret, but where is the revolt?
