CHEAD Annual Conference

Global Connections Through Arts, Design and Media – Brexit and Beyond

Wednesday 15th – Thursday 16th March 2017

Creative Arts, Design and Media have always been fields with strong international approaches to research and practice. It makes sense that they should be one of the driving forces in thinking through and making new global connections in the context of Brexit and beyond.

The aim of this conference was to bring together international partners and potential partners including from India, China and across Europe, to share perspectives on the challenges from their own standpoint and work together to identify new opportunities for links and collaborations.

It was also to engage policymakers and innovative individuals from arts and creative businesses so that the problems they are confronting are integrated into the debates together with awareness of contrasting concerns across different national and regional contexts.
