Artists, curators and researchers discuss shared concerns and ideas, drawing upon the experience of art schools in Pakistan and Bangladesh, and make links with teaching in art schools in the UK. In what way do these histories overlap? How does ‘place’ affect art teaching and making art? What challenges does a globalised art world present for an art school? In the light of recent debates, this timely event expands the discussion on the future of art schools considering multiple geographies and contexts.
