ACUADS has announced details for its 2017 conference and issued a call for abstracts. The 2017 conference will be held at the ANU School of Art and Design in Canberra on 28-29 September and the deadline for abstracts is 22 May 2017. The theme for this year’s conference is value:
Australian university art and design schools are facing increasing economic and political challenges. The visible impact of these pressures on the sector is already evident and has been widely discussed. Inevitably, the careers of younger and emerging academics will unfold in a very different environment to their older and more established colleagues. Against the backdrop of this profound change it is important to establish and declare the continuing value to Australia of art and design, and therefore the continuing value of university education and research in those disciplines. This conference will explore ‘value’ in all of its manifold senses.
