Who Should Attend

The QS Totally Arts Summit should be attended by everyone involved in the management of schools of art and design, and related academic departments. The Summit is highly relevant for both ‘insiders’, such as deans, department chairs, academics, artists in residence, professional administrators and student representatives, as well as external stakeholders from government and industry, who work with schools of art and design and who depend on them to deliver outstanding graduates and relevant, high impact art and design.

In addition to these two groups, persons from other academic disciplines, the media, academics and consultants in art management or higher education management, and those involved in university planning and rankings will find the Summit a useful microcosm of the management challenges and opportunities present in academic departments in the art and design field. As universities are increasingly expected to not just educate, but to also contribute to economic and creative innovation, these issues have broad social and economic relevance.
