Art and Design: Independent and Interrelated?

Volume 3.3   1984



A paper presented as the Presidential Address at the 1984 NSAE Annual Conference held in Bath. Examines definitions of the terms, art, craft, design and technology before going on to explore the connections and relationships between them. The paper argues that art and design are interdependent and interrelated; that both contribute, equally, to the quality of life and each is ignored at society's peril.
