We are very pleased to welcome Conway and Young to the MAGMD Guest Practitioner Series 2017 on Monday 06 March, 4.30-5.30pm, D209.Conway and Young will present a workshop entitled Conditions of Possibility – Research and Action
Conway and Young are graphic designers and lecturers with a long-term interest in the relationship between people, environment and learning. They use design to rethink the social, political and environmental.
Taking both a discursive and material approach to the subject they are concerned with design’s critical and social potential to generate debate, interaction and exchange between people and communities. Projects often involve formal and informal collaborations with others.
Conway and Young have an experimental integrated design and pedagogic practice and have produced a range of projects for galleries and public settings across the UK for the last ten years. These include: ‘Exploding the University Summer School’, a critical design school in rural Wales; ‘The Floating’, a temporary publishing project on land and water for Bristol Biennial 2016; ‘See You Next Tuesday’, an irregular feminist adventure club. They are currently designing a performance and sculptural work for a primary school, commissioned by Bristol City Council.
They have a studio at Spike Island Bristol and both lecture on undergraduate and graduate design courses at Bristol UWE.
