Impact 8 Printmaking Conference, 28Aug-1Sep, Scotland

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???
