Everything interesting begins with one person and one place*

The Masters Showcase Speaker Programme, curated by Dr Maria Fusco, Professor of Interdisciplinary Writing at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, celebrates the achievements of our graduating Masters students. The events engage with renowned interdisciplinary practitioners speculating on what’s at stake in where we are now, what it means to produce public works in private, and why creativity is essential for society.

*The programme’s title is borrowed from Irish author John McGahern.
