To encourage, foster and be challenged by design discourse in the broader community, the School of Art, Architecture and Design (often in collaboration with other institutions) arranges symposia and conferences. Discourse at these events encompasses urban design and planning, architectural and urban history, the transformation of art, craft and design practices, and interior architecture education. Undergraduate and postgraduate students are encourage to attend and contribute.
