Keynote at Leeds Arts University Symposium

Maxwell wil give a keynote address at The Expanding Communities of Sustainable Practice Symposium in October 2021.

“continuing the dialogue on how to expand communities of sustainable practice within and beyond art and design schools. Given the need for art and design education to transform its mode of operating in times of massive ecological crises, the symposium is an opportunity to learn from cases of good practice, obtain feedback on one’s initiatives and to network with others who are eager to make art and design education an effective advocate of sustainable practice.

Communities of sustainable practice are groups or networks of educators, designers, artists, craftspeople, researchers and students who aim to place sustainability concerns at the heart of their practice. Through the symposium we want to provide a space for people involved in such initiatives to effectively network and strategise together in order to enhance the positive impact and reach of what they do.”

The event takes place online on 14th & 15th October 2021 hosted by Leeds Arts University.

Tickets for the symposium will be available from September.
