IMPACT 6 will celebrate 10 years since the conference began in Bristol in 1999. We would like to focus on the international diversity of the discipline, from its roots in industrial communication through traditional, fine art based processes, to the current cutting edge technology and theoretical debates. With the theme of ‘celebration’ in mind, we will be returning to many of the original topics upon which IMPACT was founded, as well as looking at new areas of discussion that have evolved with the growth and development of the discipline. These topics are listed here among the IMPACT luggage.
