The day-long event will see the worlds of digital technology, science, art, and engineering converge to demonstrate the importance of art alongside and within other subjects.
Expert contributors, special guests, visual literacy advocates and innovators will discuss and demonstrate the integral role of creativity and drawing within their disciplines.
