Alt/Shift is a one day conference that aims to examine what the future of design education could, should or might be.

The conference will take place on Thursday 13 December at the LBi Event Space in London.

Speaking on the day will be:

  • Matt Wade – Co-founder and Director of Kin.
  • Russell Holmes – Creative Strategy Partner at Ico Design.
  • Will Hudson – Founder of It’s Nice That.

Alt/Shift is thinking about the following:

How can we connect with and inform emerging creative methodology? Do we need to be more accountable to the industries we serve? Do we have a wider social responsibility? How do we build better relationships with the tertiary and secondary sectors?

What are the priorities that will drive our pedagogy into the 21st Century?

Maverick or collaborator? Isolation or connection? Picture maker or problem solver? Authorship or co-creation? Minority or majority? Originality or interpretation? Artifact or experience? Craft or communication? Freedom or restriction? Inspiration or evidence? Clarity or intrigue? Academic or vocational? Niche or mainstream? Personal or Public?
