UAL International Staff Week: Creative Collaboration Across Borders, London, United Kingdom, 19th March – 23rd March 2018
This year’s International Staff Week will explore the theme of Creative Collaboration Across Borders. UAL believes that creativity has to operate across borders by necessity and during a time when borders (cultural, geographical, political) are becoming more fixed, they want to celebrate the projects that engender this commitment.
Come and join UAL to learn about best practice in international cooperation, to network amongst colleagues within the same fields as you and to gain added value for your institution through shared expertise and knowledge. The week’s events will be hosted across the colleges, with the first day held at Central Saint Martins and the second at London College of Communication. There will be opportunities to visit all six colleges during the week as well as an exciting opportunity to take part in a Fabric Screen Printing class.
The finalised agenda will be confirmed in March.
Please apply online by 1st March
