The organisers of this conference are looking for high quality academic papers that explore subjects related to collaborative practice in a craft, design and art environment. These could include (but are not limited to) discussions of:

  • collaboration within and  across disciplines
  • good practice of how to work between institutions and collaborate with outside partners
  • the impact  of strategy
  • collaborative curating of exhibition
  • collaborative student projects
  • influence of collaborative  strategies onlearning and teaching practice
  • collaborative manifestos

They invite the submission of abstracts of 500 words by 7 January 2011. Authors of selected abstracts will subsequently be invited to submit full papers (3000-5000 words) in February 2011. They are interested in both theoretical papers and ideas for discussion formats. Please indicate the nature of your submission within your abstract.
While they expect to publish all submissions in an ISBN publication, they are also currently in negotiation to develop anumber of appropriate papers into a special issue of The Journal of Modern Craft.
Please submit your abstract by 7 January 2011 to: Helen Felcey
