DIEO in Art and Design Schools (swissuniversities)

In the project "DIEO in Art and Design Schools", two Swiss Art and Design Schools initiatives join forces in an interdisciplinary and site-specific pilot program at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design (HGK FHNW) and Department of Performing Arts and Film at the Zurich University of the Arts. (ZHdK)

Funding: Swissuniversities P7
Time: 01.09.2022 – 31.12.2024
Partners: ZHdK

The goal of the program is to address the issues of diversity, inclusion, and equal opportunity (DIEO), operating at the intersection of education, knowledge production, and community building, at the same time enhancing interdisciplinary and interinstitutional exchange.

Amidst transnational debates on depatriarchalizing and decolonizing design, performing and fine arts, and the rise of anti-discriminatory movements in Swiss academia; two parallelly running programs have emerged: the Intersectional Lab in Arts and Design at the HGK FHNW and Living Inclusion at ZHdK with the common goal of integrating the DIEO into educational, mediation and organizational life of both schools.

Using intersectionality as a guiding framework and applying art and design practices to enhance paradigm change on cultural, institutional, and educational levels will be implemented through two sub-programs that collaborate with each other and are situated within the specific context of each school.
