#CHEAD2022 @Policy_Connect @florianefid @shizanv Recommending Art, Design and Innovation policy must adapt to embrace diversity of thought and embed artists and designers in policy processes. From conception to completion #Civic pic.twitter.com/QK4TtVm2ty— CHEAD (@CHEAD_UK) March 16, 2022
Had a fantastic time presenting initial findings of the APDIG + @CHEAD_UK’s policy paper on Art and Design research at the #CHEAD2022 Conference. Great, rich feedback and much to think about in how we move forward to get Art and Design research fully realised by government. pic.twitter.com/FHLZU1TXMO— Shiza (@shizanv) March 16, 2022
So wonderful to have chaired the NFT Conference with @LSESUVisualArts joined by the amazing @SimonOldfield and @chrisspeed! Had such rich discussions around the technology behind NFTs, #NFTs and #climatechange, also acknowledging power relations and the protection of artists! pic.twitter.com/RaMQapKkS1— Shiza (@shizanv) March 14, 2022
So great to hear from students talking about the civic role of university, justice, and student activism. They need to centre more in these critical conversations #CHEAD2022 @florianefid @CHEAD_UK @IndTechInnov_PC pic.twitter.com/1xQVxzIWo9— Shiza (@shizanv) March 16, 2022
