Professor Craig Bremner has participated in Design School: The Future of the project which comprises three Design Summits, being held at the Design Museum, London between June 2016 and September 2017. It explores the future of Design education informed by a range of international perspectives from invited speakers from design education, culture and industry.
The three Design Summits reflect three significant turns in the contemporary Design School. The first held in June 13 2016, "Design School and the Educational Turn", focused on current issues including the burgeoning development of private design schools, increased distance learning, and national policies surrounding design education pursued by governments across the world. The second summit to be staged on June 19 2017, "Design School and the Industry Turn", will examine the increasingly intensive relationship between industries and design schools that will stimulate debate over future design school policy and private companies' agendas. The third summit to be staged on 12 September 2017, "Design School and the Cultural Turn", will focus on the increasingly close relationship between design schools and the cultural sector.
The project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK) and is a collaboration between Imagination@Lancaster, Lancaster University; Charles Sturt University, Australia; and the Design Museum, London.
