Design in Art and Design

The Design in Education SIG aims to improve and articulate the position of 'Design' in art & design education

The objectives of the SIG in 2017-2019 were:

  • To define and build downloadable content for NSEAD members;
  • To work with DATA, the subject association for design & technology to make the case for both Art & Design and D&T to be both complementary and  distinct;
  • To build a position statement to support NSEAD's policy work when making the case for design in the art and design curriculum.



The Design Special Interest Group in 2024 chairs are: Ged Gast and Dan China.

If you need any information about the SIG please contact Sophie Leach (NSEAD research and policy officer)



This SIG was formed in 2017-2019 and reformed in Jan 2024.
