ASCUS at The Big Draw’s STEAM Symposium

#STEAMSymposium: Laboratory of Visual Exploration

Presented by The Big Draw in partnership with The University of Lincoln & BALTIC

ASCUS is delighted to be contributing to STEAM Symposium, a visual learning adventure for educators and anyone interested in the power of cross-disciplinary approaches to learning.



The day-long event will see the worlds of digital technology, science, art, and engineering converge to demonstrate the importance of art alongside and within other subjects. Expert contributors, special guests, visual literacy advocates and innovators will discuss and demonstrate the integral role of creativity and drawing within their disciplines. Educators will be invited to take part in workshops, digital drawing demonstrations, interactive experiments and innovative installations, which aim to show why STEM should become STEAM.

This event is sponsored by The University of Lincoln as part of a three-year relationship with The Big Draw, and is supported by the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead. The event will highlight the importance of visual literacy in the UK. The Big Draw’s educational programme is supported by ACE.
