GLAD Conference 2019 (UK)

Art & Design Education – where do we go from here?

It’s the UK, and it’s 2031.  Will there still be creative teenagers in schools eager to study with us?  Will the creative industries still be looking to us to promote the latest talent?  What new technologies might have replaced us in our studios and lecture halls?  It’s art school, Jim, but not as we know it…

At a time of unprecedented change, the annual GLAD conference is one thing you can rely on, aiming to steer a clear path through all the chaos and the negativity.  Curriculum review; Design for sustainability education; Alternative models of learning; Transformational technologies.  These are just a few of the critical issues to be visited and debated at this year’s conference. 

Whether you are a researcher into creative pedagogy; a lecturer with exciting new ideas from the studio floor; or a leader with possible insights into the future direction of the sector - you are warmly invited to join us this year.
