My Cumulus Story
Maya Koyava – Kipiani,
Head of Foreign Affairs Department, Tbilisi State Academy of Art, Georgia (firstname.lastname@example.org)
First of all I’d like to express gratitude for inviting me to the Cumulus Plus+ Conference IN THIS PLACE at Nottingham Trent university, and of course, for awarding me with the grant.
I have a broad-range background of traveling and participation in various conferences, art projects, etc. Though here, after attending the Cumulus conference for the first time, I’d like to mention some of my impressions, feelings, thoughts:
Dear Cumulus members,
please pass on this announcement in your network:
Open Design for E-very-thing – exploring new design purposes
November 21 – 24, 2016 Hong Kong, China
Hosted by the Hong Kong Design Institute
Cumulus is seeking for academics and staff working in colleges and universities in art, design and media in higher education from different parts of the world and countries less familiar to Cumulusians. The aim is to create the opportunity for friendship between people and generate partnership and exchange of knowledge between the different institutions. We try to mobilize people where there is not enough individual and institutional linkages with Cumulus members. Cumulus can mobilize three candidates with the individual grant of max 1.500€ to come over to Hong Kong in the next conference under the Cumulus umbrella in November 2016. Please read more:
Cumulus Executive Board and the General Assembly in Nottingham UK in April 2016 decided to support three (3) publications by the Cumulus Working Groups. The aim is to provide a transparent and collaborative platform for sharing the knowledge by the working groups and an opportunity for art, design and media educators and researchers to reach a wider network. Each publication will get a grant of max 10.000 € by Cumulus. Further details in this pdf:
