Crossing Borders was a two day workshop that involved students and staff from Graphic ArtsWinchester School of Art, England and Industrial Design, Bilgi Üniversitesi, Turkey to participate in the wider questioning of the contexts of immigration in and outside the EU. The project used technologies to live stream simultaneously across two institutes. The aim was to eradicate educational learning from its native geo-political location through the use of collaborative teaching and learning that extends beyond the traditional confines of institutional teaching space, place and conventions.
The students worked in pairs to form ideas that tackled issues around immigration from a UK and Turkish perspective. The output of these workshops will be collated and formed into a publication and exhibition, which will be designed by the students involved.
The year 3 Graphic Arts students involved in the project also designed a custom display typeface and visual language for the project with the added assistance of typographer, Tom Foley from Dalton Maag. The students had presented a very professional and highly executed outcome that captured the intentions of the project.
Many thanks to students Joe Atkinson, Ed Hatfield, Hoda Khoda, Callum Strachan for developing the identity and Espen Gronberg for building the Crossing Borders website.
