Join Paul Westlake at the 54th Annual Conference of the International Council of Fine Arts Deans in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Paul will lead a roundtable discussion on Facilitating Inter-Disciplinary Collaboration Through Design, Oct. 19 from 2:30 - 4:00 p.m. in the Foyer outside the Nova Scotia Ballroom. For universities wanting to provide a holistic combination and synthesis of arts disciplines, the confines of traditionally adjacent programs functioning autonomously is often cemented by facilities that keep these programs separate due to inadequate space, technology, connectivity, and accessibility. These obstacles can be mitigated or eliminated through well-conceived design, whether the school is considering a new arts complex or renovating existing structures. This roundtable discussion will explore the challenges and opportunities of designing for inter-disciplinary collaboration, as well as issues of funding and stakeholder buy-in.
