Hello, hello and welcome
Running With Scissors

In April 2019 we’re bringing one of the world’s most influential design conferences to one of the world’s most interesting design cities. The European Academy of Design (EAD) is coming to Dundee.

We are thrilled to be hosting the 13th International Conference at The University of Dundee, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DJCAD), and the City of Dundee.

Our Conference theme, ‘Running with Scissors’ might imply recklessness. However, it also suggests putting aside conventional wisdom, taking risks and being creatively disruptive. In short, doing what Scotland, and Dundee, is best at!

Browse our website, read up on our radical conference theme, our beautiful venues, our 8 timely and fascinating tracks, and all the ways the design community is getting involved.

The future of design is up for grabs and it’s the risk-takers and disobedient that will define it!  This Conference is Different, this Conference is Challenging – we’re RUNNING WITH SCISSORS, we’re Bursting with Ideas, we’re Ready to Welcome You!

Join us in Dundee in April 2019 to work out how risk can define the future of design.
