There’s never been a better time to hold an international design conference in Dundee and we aim to energise new partnerships with our local, national and international communities; to inspire, to motivate and to celebrate Scottishness, Scottish business, research, innovation, and entrepreneurship across the world.
We are keen to engage widely with our communities, businesses, and sponsors to help sustain the momentum of change for the City; to collectively shape what the future of design in the city will be, and how it can affect positive change for all of us in Dundee. Legacy is important and we want to share local stories with our international audience—to celebrate your success and to position it in terms of global design culture.
In April 2019, the University of Dundee, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DJCAD) are bringing one of the world’s most influential design conferences to one of the world’s most interesting design cities. The 13th International Conference of the European Academy of Design (EAD2019) is coming to DUNDEE!
Our conference theme, Running with Scissors, might imply recklessness. But it also suggests putting aside conventional wisdom, taking risks and being creatively disruptive. In short, doing what Scotland, and Dundee, is best at. We’d be honoured if you’d consider joining us.
You will find sponsorship options below, but we would also be delighted to speak with you to discuss an option that is tailored specifically to you and your organisation.
EAD2019 is excited about the potential mutual benefits of partnerships with our local community so that we invest in a positive future. To enquire about any of the sponsorship packages, please contact:
