This conference revisits the purpose and potential of Art & Design in 2023. Creative practitioners have always looked outwards but today they are increasingly mobile, crossing traditional delineations to engage not just with diverse media and methodologies, but ever more disparate disciplinary fields of practice and influence. The global pandemic was a further disruptor that generated unprecedented innovation in creative fields, out of necessity. This in turn catalysed a re-evaluation of the assumed outcomes of creative education and research; foregrounding skills such as collaboration, communication, empathy and ethics – so-called ‘soft skills’ that, in conjunction with innovation and imagination, now appear more important than ever.
