Are you involved in the practice of designing or redeveloping museums and galleries? Are you undertaking research into an aspect of museum design or visitor experience? Are you interested in learning from and with others involved in museum design internationally?

The Future of Museum and Gallery Design draws together museum professionals, museum, gallery and exhibition designers and museum design researchers from around the world, to explore new approaches to and future developments in design for the cultural sector. Based in Hong Kong, the event will draw together a critical and international mass of expertise from a range of cultural traditions in order to create a dynamic forum for the sharing of ideas and the development of new skills and knowledge. The event will showcase leading-edge approaches to the design of 21st century museums and galleries, provide a platform for new research and thinking on museum design and offer access to a range of training opportunities.

As well as seeking submissions which explore creative approaches to the design of meaningful and engaging visitor experiences, the conference seeks case studies and research which will expose the potential for design processes and design thinking to make a significant contribution to the strategic development of museums and cultural organisations internationally, challenging conventional approaches to museum and gallery making, providing a forum for debate, and seeking to unleash the potential of design and creativity for the cultural sector.

Our call for proposals is open until 15th June 2015 and registration for The Future of Museum and Gallery Design will begin on 1st June 2015.


Event co-organised by School of Museum Studies University of Leicester, Dept of Architecture University of Nottingham, Central St Martins University of the Arts London.

Special issue – Volume 3, Issue 2 (Autumn 2016) Call for Contributions. 0 hours: the role and impact of transient teachers in architecture education

Charrette (ISSN 2054-6718), the journal of the Association of Architectural Educators (AAE), first published in 2013, is now firmly established as a leading journal for practitioners and theorists engaged in innovative and significant architectural education and research. For this issue (Autumn 2016), the Guest Editor, Gemma Barton, (Senior Lecturer, College of Art, Design and Media, University of Brighton) invites papers and projects which explore the role, position, impact and relationships of transient teachers in architecture;

- How do you/they contribute?
- What do you/they offer/withdraw from teaching experience?
- How do you/they experience and are experienced by HE, professional bodies, offices
- What influence do you/they have over the schools/departments?
- Does 0 hours = 0 power?
- Do you/they feel a sense of belonging?
- Fractional contracts: How much time is enough time, efficiency vs commitment
- Is the transition into FT employment supported?
- Is the hiring process fair and easy to navigate?

With a focus on teaching-practitioners, practicising-teachers this issue will delve into the world of VL, HPL, zero hours, adjunct, PTE, FTE, fixed-term, temporary, supplier and many more. Whether identifying as ‘academics’ or otherwise, a healthy proportion of architecture educators operate within this itinerant structure yet as a topic it is under-investigated and under-represented in academic research. As such this call for papers hopes to receive submissions from the full spectrum of architecture educators internationally and encourages submissions from students, graduates, representatives, early career academics and those with part-time/flexible agreements with universities that unearth data, patterns, emotions, experiences, dreams and realities.

We welcome submissions that;

- look at the effects on the potential for research activity that these
roles create or inhibit within the architectural education framework
- present and analyse individual, departmental, institutional, organisational, geographical patterns of data
- present quantitative data on ‘non-full-time’ academics
- examine the relationships between teaching practitioners, institutions, practice, students, full time academics
- demonstrate the ‘products’ of teaching practitioners
- document the lives, hinter-lives and profiles of transient tutors
- set out histories and futures of this itinerant group of architectural educators.
- consider the impact on student learning experience of ‘non-full-time’
