It is open to tutors, lecturers, technicians, study support tutors and librarians who have an interest in equality and diversity

Introduction
Art and Design education enables individuals and groups to actively engage and develop cultural practices, so cultural diversity lies at the heart of the development of all contemporary art and design practices.

Who should attend?
This event is open to tutors, lecturers, technicians, study support tutors and librarians who have an interest in equality and diversity.

How do we support and nurture new diverse cultural practices within the curriculum?
This conference will explore ways to embed equality and diversity in the art and design HE curriculum and teaching. Drawing on research and practice in the field, the event will showcase best practice in relation to inclusion and will offer delegates an opportunity to share ideas and approaches. Delegates will be able to discuss key concepts and explore the meanings and approaches adopted in the sector.

Speakers
Terry Finnigan and Aisha Richards (tutors at UAL and authors of “Embedding equality and diversity in the curriculum: an art and design practitioners’ guide”) will work with delegates to help them identify creative flexible and sustainable ways to develop inclusive pedagogy and curriculum in the studio.

Professor Vicky Gunn (Head of Learning and Teaching, Glasgow School of Arts) will share her work on diversity and inclusion.

Dr Kate Hatton is Head of Inclusive Education Programmes, UAL and edited ‘Towards an Inclusive Arts Education’ in 2015.
