D&AD are hosting a student event at Glasgow School of Art on Feb 8th.

With our HND2 students out on work placement, HND1 are getting the opportunity to make the trip, with Helena and myself, to Glasgow for a day with D&AD.

The provisional timetable of events is as follows:

11.00am - 12.30pm: D&AD Talk - Student Awards and New Blood
12.30pm – 1.30pm: University Network Tutors meeting and lunch
2.00pm - 4.00pm: Industry led Workshops x 2
2.30pm - 4.30pm: Portfolio Surgeries
5.30pm - 7.00pm: Industry Talk – location to be confirmed.

There will also be an AVA bookstall, where students can purchase discounted publications and tutors will be able to order sample copies.

This is a great chance to meet other students and tutors, see and hear D&AD's great wealth of experience and knowledge, and of course visit one of the great creative institutions in the UK.

Later this week we will try and confirm times and travel arrangements.
