The 2014 Spring Cumulus conference’s theme is “what’s on: cultural diversity, social engagement and shifting education“ aiming to bring together theory and practice to discuss ways in which Design, Art, Music and Digital Media are contributing, or can contribute, to challenges in an era of global transformation characterized by uncertainty, ambiguity and complexity.

This edition will be held at the Department of Communication and Art of University of Aveiro, which is a multidisciplinary department that gathers the areas of Design, Art Studies, Digital Media and Music.

Therefore the conference aims at joining together designers, artists, musicians, theory-based researchers, and educators to develop interdisciplinary discussion on the proposed theme.
