A free public forum co-hosted by RMIT to discuss the rationale underpinning practice and theory in contemporary craft and design.
A panel discussion will frame a discussion on three key questions: Who are the makers of craft; what are the technologies of craft; could a material situationist perspective offer a contemporary theory and practice of craft?
The presentation will examine how makers and researches use practice, theory and material knowledge to critically probe possible futures or suggest alternatives to what already exists, providing leadership within the rapidly changing international field of craft and design.
