Meet the people at Winter School 2017

Studio working for Winter School 2017

Winter School is a highlight of the GSA’s annual calendar. This year, it has brought together around 100 leading design academics and students from all over the world to research and study at the GSA’s new Highlands and Islands Creative Campus.

Over two activity-filled weeks, students took part in lectures, workshops and joint research projects with local businesses and communities.

This year’s theme is Innovation from Tradition, which explores how past traditions can inspire future ways of working, and the role that design can play.

The GSA team at the Highlands and Islands Creative Campus have thoroughly enjoyed hosting such an exciting group at Winter School… And the good news is that the group have enjoyed it too! Find out what delegates at this year’s Winter School have to say about the experience:
