Finding our place in the world through art and design. Join our panel of late career artists and Dr Sam Broadhead from Leeds Arts University in conversation with NSEAD President Dr Rachel Payne.
Session one by webinar 5-6pm
In her research into widening participation, Dr Samantha Broadhead, Head of Research has asked the question: Why do mature students in art and design matter?
Join late career artists Ingrid Bale, John Gamble, Carol Sowden, Mel Dewey and Ann Barrass as we discuss some of the reasons why mature students study later in life and how valuable inter-generational learning is in art, craft and design. What capacities do mature students bring that enrich the learning experience for everyone. How do the diverse cultural references that people from different age groups bring enhance art and design practice?
