Mal will be talking about the Diversity Network that he's set up at the Edinburgh College of Art.
Mal Burkinshaw is the Director of the Edinburgh College of Art Diversity Network, uniting experts from academia, industry and charity sectors to discuss and improve the lack of diversity within design processes, design outcomes and fashion communication. This led to a major symposium at the National Museum of Scotland in 2018 funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh. More recently, The Network was a direct catalyst for the National Museum of Scotland to devise Body Beautiful: Diversity on the Catwalk; the world’s first exhibition on fashion and diversity, in 2019.
Mal will present an overview of the network, and will encourage discussion on the ongoing need for more ‘emotionally considerate’ approaches to fashion design and communications.
