If you want to learn how craft contributes to innovation and enterprise, attending this year’s Crafts Council Conference is a must.
This year’s Crafts Council Conference takes place at the RIBA, London on September 20th. The aim of “Assemble” is to bring people together to discuss the contribution that craft makes to innovation and enterprise and also the relationship between making, science and technology. The conference is open to any creative professional, maker, engineer, scientist or technologist who has an interest in exploring the possibilities of collaboration and innovation.
Although Bio Science and high end manufacturing will be the main focus of the sessions, it is hoped that all attendees will learn more about setting up cross-disciplinary projects across a range of sectors.There will be various Keynote Speakers on the day including Biocouture’s Suzanne Lee, visual artist Tine Bech and Director of iShed, Clare Reddington. Apart from the speakers of course there are a whole host of sessions and activities including panel discussions and workshops.
Increasing awareness and promoting potential opportunities for engineers, scientists and technologists to meet and collaborate with creatives and makers can surely only be a good thing, can’t it? If you’d like to attend, tickets are still available on either an individual or group/organisation basis.
