Abstract

Printmaking globally is a thriving and very diverse discipline that currently encompasses practice from traditional woodcutting and engraving through to laser cutting and 3D printing. Sixteen years ago I started the first IMPACT conference because in the UK printmaking was under threat of closure within the academic community. Printing was seen as redundant with the rise of digital technology. this threat of closure was not being imposed in other parts of the world therefore it became clear to myself, and Richard Anderton that if we could demonstrate the health and global nature of the discipline it would help mitigate the arguments for closure. Our idea was that IMPACT could become a forum for supporting and informing teachers and practitioners of printmaking internationally.
