CHEAD Annual Conference 2017
Global Connections Through Arts, Design and Media – Brexit and Beyond
Creative Arts, Design and Media have always been fields with strong international approaches to research and practice. It makes sense that they should be one of the driving forces in thinking through and making new global connections in the context of Brexit and beyond.
This conference aims to bring together international partners and potential partners including from India, China and across Europe, to share perspectives on the challenges from their own standpoint and work together to identify new opportunities for links and collaborations.
Its aim will be to engage policymakers and innovative individuals from arts and creative businesses so that the problems they are confronting are integrated into the debates together with awareness of contrasting concerns across different national and regional contexts.
Main themes include:
the changed global market and how to be successful within it
creative sectors in higher education as drivers in forging new global connections
maintaining internationalisation in higher education
sustaining European networks and pre-Brexit imperatives
