INFE (International Network of Foundation Educators) invite you to attend The Foundation Course in Art and Design: Past, Present and Future: Collective Imaginings, a free online symposium that aims to capture the range, vitality, varied histories and importance of Foundation courses to wider art and design education.

02 December Thursday — 03 December Friday, Start 13.00 (Moscow time)

This discussion gives an opportunity to share diverse experiences and find new ideas or shared concerns with colleagues and creative practitioners from a range of international Foundation courses, as well as showcasing their creative projects.

The event will feature concise presentations from international contributors organised into 4 strands plus an invited address from Richard Demarco:

- Student Perspectives
- Projects: Shifting Mechanics
- Foundation Histories
- Manifestos and Emerging Pedagogies

At the end of each strand, there will be the opportunity for questions and discussion on the issues raised. We encourage anyone engaged with Foundation courses to join us and contribute to these conversations on the day.

Speakers confirmed include: Sarah Carne, Alexandra Benyumova & Sofya Salimzyanova, Davina Drummond, Zhang Xueqing, Nicola Cummings, Harry Meadley & Nina Wakeford, Adrian Scrivener, Pauline Clancy, Sissi Hu, Nicola Fitchett, Juan Cruz, Doug Bowen, Stuart Bennett, Judith Winter, Eileen Simpson & Ben White, Paul Taylor & Kate Timney, Li Zhang, Simon Packard, Neil Mulholland, Richard Demarco

We will send you the link to the broadcast prior to the event.

We are thrilled to be presenting our second online symposium as part of FutureLab 2021. FutureLab is an annual international exchange platform for art and design education. It brings together the world’s outstanding art and design colleges and universities, focussing on innovative practices and the latest challenges for education today.
