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 are:

  • 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 is chaired by Ged Gast, past president of NSEAD. 

Liz Macfarlane, president-elect is co-chair; 

Dr Emese Hall is an advisor.

Sophie Leach (NSEAD lead officer)



This SIG was formed in 2017-2019
