2014 marks the first year of 'The Masters'. Following successful visits from undergraduate final year students of  over the past three years, we are delighted to welcome the postgraduate MDes Design for Creative Practive course from the Magee campus of the University of Ulster (Apply here). The Masters Design course is moving in a new direction at Magee. There is an emphasis on design collaboration and Allingham 2014 provides a unique platform for the students to present their thinking to a knowledgable audience. The students will spend 6 weeks researching, exploring and preparing the talks with a view to completing a research paper to be presented at the Drew Conference in Bundoran in January.

This is an excellent opportunity for the Allingham Festival to lead the way in collaborative creative thinking. Bringing the Masters Design students into this environment offers them a creative challenge and allows us to be innovative in our teaching and learning planning.
