International Perspectives on Art and Design Pedagogy
Leeds College of Art, Leeds, UK
7 - 8 October 2010
Call for papers:

Keynote speaker: Sir John Sorrell (The Sorrel Foundation, author of Creative Island)

International Perspectives on Art and Design Pedagogy is a conference that seeks to advocate communication, co-operation and innovation in the teaching and research of internationally relevant art, design and media education. This conference invites speakers with innovative perspectives on teaching and learning from around the world to come together in collegiate friendship in order to best share, co-operate and disseminate their research to new communities of academics from around the globe.

They particularly welcome papers that address the increasing internationalisation of art and design education, or that reflect best practice in different global countries.

Papers might include pedagogic perspectives on (for instance):
• Fashion • Graphic Design • Fine Art • Digital Media • Creative Advertising • Architecture • Photography • Critical and contextual perspectives • 3D and product design • Media

They also welcome existing papers on the condition that they have not previously been presented to a UK audience.

Hosted by Leeds College of Art this conference coincides with the major regional festival of art and culture: Light Night, which is a multi-art form festival that celebrates the diverse and creative vision of a city engaging with international perspectives in art, culture and media.

They encourage speakers to engage not only with local community of art and design practitioners and educators but to present papers that look towards the futures of art and design in its international context.

Call for papers: Deadline: 21 June 2010.

Please send abstracts of no more than 250 words to the conference director Toby Juliff

Successful papers will be awarded a bursary to support reasonable travel costs and subsistence. Details on request.
