London College of Communication

This half-day event will focus upon the role of writing in/across/through design education and practice. The afternoon will be in two parts and will encourage participants to share thoughts and experiences.

Dr Nicky Ryan (Dean of LCC’s Design School) will open the event. Paul Bailey (Course Leader of MA Graphic Media Design, LCC) will introduce keynotes from Bryony Quinn (writer, educator, lecturer) and James Langdon (designer, writer, educator). LCC’s current MA Graphic Media Design participants will host three parallel workshops/activities to explore a series of provocations. After a tea break, Professor John Wood (Goldsmiths Emeritus Professor in Design, founder of WritingPAD and co-editor of the Journal of Writing in Creative Practice) will offer an endnote. The afternoon will close with a plenary panel discussion fuelled by questions and observations from participants. We will then retire to LCC’s local pub, The Prince of Wales, to continue the conversation.
