Join us in Porto for ECADE2022!
July 07–10, 2022 | University of Porto, Portugal
Welcome to The European Conference on Arts, Design & Education (ECADE2022), which IAFOR is hosting in the historic city of Porto, Portugal, and in partnership with the University of Porto, the ID+/Research Institute for Design, Media and Culture, and the IAFOR Research Centre at OSIPP, Osaka University, Japan.
Strategically nestled on a beautiful stretch of the Iberian peninsula, and with over 2,000 years of history, Porto enjoys spectacular architecture, from the ancient to the modern, and the entire historic centre of the city, with its spectacular waterfront, is listed as a World Heritage Site. It is a renowned centre for great cuisine, and its world famous Port wine. This cultural, architectural and gastronomic centre will be an excellent venue for our conference.
Art | Design | Education
ECADE2022 will explore and share how art, design and education together can have an impact, make a societal difference, and contribute to the economy and how we think, live, work, and learn. As we emerge from the pandemic, and face climate emergency, this is a unique opportunity to review our values, and thus renew our sense of citizenship, and what constitutes the ‘common good’ both locally and globally.
Our conference will look at how design shapes and mediates ideas, how the visual arts challenge and question our perceptions, and how education seeks ways to develop our shared understanding and our skills, to listen, and to find different ways to speak and to act together.
In focusing on the difference we make and hope to make, we welcome contributions from designers, artists and educators, but importantly also from the voices of others, from partners and collaborators, from those who are users, beneficiaries and audiences whether from other disciplinary communities, (computer science, sociology, anthropology, engineering, economics or geography) or from beyond academia, from entrepreneurs, policy makers, medical or health specialists, local businesses or community groups. The conference recognises that such cross-sector participation can help us understand not only how we produce and disseminate, but perhaps more critically in building a dialogue, how we are received and perceived.
We look forward to seeing you in Porto in 2022!
