CRAFT AND THE (RE)TURN OF THE MAKER IN A POST-GLOBAL SUSTAINABLY AWARE SOCIETY
Making Futures will be held on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th September 2015 in the magnificently sited Mount Edgcumbe house on the River Tamar opposite the city of Plymouth, Devon, UK.
Making Futures welcomes submissions from students, staff and alumni. In addition to traditional academic papers, we are also calling for practice-based presentations and/or proposals for innovative formats that might include performance, objects, AV, and other media and materials.
We hope therefore that staff and students across disciplines might be interested to submit to the conference.
The two day conference will appeal to those who have an interest in the relationship between contemporary making, sustainability and social change, including artists, craftspeople, designers and design groups, curators, historians, theorists, campaigners, activists, and enterprises engaging in making and/or with makers.
Full details can be found on the conference website here.
Deadline for applications: Monday 1st June 2015
