Theme: Expanded Boundaries

As with many academic disciplines, art and design education too often tends to circle around itself, playing out an internalised set of concerns often to known audiences. Expanded Boundariessuggests a broader and actively outward engagement, in which the methods and concepts of the arts and design are taken into other areas – not as subservient modes of communication, but as catalyst and vehicle for new collaborative ways of thinking in business, social innovation, science, culture and so on.
