#Decolonise! will give design educators the opportunity to reflect on, and critically interrogate the notion of Decolonisation in relation to design education with the aim of transforming existing practices.
The Design Education Forum of Southern Africa (DEFSA) invites all role-players in design to submit academic papers that will contribute to this discourse. You do not need to be a DEFSA member (or work at an institution that is a DEFSA member) to submit a paper. The 14th National Design Education Conference of the Design Education Forum of Southern Africa (DEFSA) is hosted by the Tshwane University of Technology’s Faculty of the Arts and Inscape Education Group. It takes from 27 – 29 September at Freedom Park, City of Tshwane.
