It's only 5 months til Impact 8 International Printmaking Conference:
'A celebration of interdisciplinarity and exploration through the medium of print.'
28th August – 1st September 2013 in Dundee, Scotland.
The 8th Impact international conference will be hosted in Dundee
as a central element to the inaugural Print Festival Scotland –
an event which aims to confirm the cultural diversity, historical significance and future potential of print.
Foregrounding the inherent experimental and interdisciplinary nature of print practices
Impact 8 will provide a critical and interactive platform
for the varied interests that make print such a unique discipline.
From its hybrid roots in industry and scholarship, through traditional design applications and fine art practices to it’s consistent significance within emerging technologies and theoretical debate –
print continues to play a crucial role in the exploration of borders and crossings –
be they geographical, ideological, cultural, theoretical or practical.
|To coincide with Impact 8, there will be an exhibition of works by Sister Corita Kent (1918-1986) in Dundee.|
With the theme of ‘exploration’ and the multiple identity of the print, in mind,
we would like to welcome you to Dundee to explore the cross-disciplinary nature of print media.
Impact 8 will build upon the meetings reputation as a truly international event
whilst reflecting the cultural identity of Scotland and Dundee’s reputation and heritage
as the ‘City of Discovery’ – from polar exploration to biomedical research
and its traditions of print, printmaking and publishing.
I know it is the other side of the world,
but I'd love to find out if any of you are planning to go???
