All Walks On The Curriculum. June 2010
All Walks hosted the first ‘Futures Forum,’ at Graduate Fashion Week, June 2010 to reach deep into education and inspire tutors and students to think about the way fashion design and fashion communication is taught. 61 Heads of Dept from colleges up and down the country were invited to discuss how diversity could make a contribution to creativity, and how the curriculum could reflect a new way of thinking. Fashion illustration, writing photography and styling as well as design, were all areas for discussion.
All Walks will continue to work with educationalists to broaden thinking at student level.
We were delighted with the response from educationalists across the board and the conversations ranged from ‘the power of celebrity,’ to the tricky financial pressures young creatives are under to find a job within a dynamic that does not prioritise consumer well-being, diversity or body image issues.
It was at this first meet that we put out a call for a passionate tutor to help us create a Diversity Network.
