Creative practice and social responsibility

  • Yu Lun Lin: BA Fashion design and development/ Fashion Design lecturer, London College of Fashion/ School of design technology
Social responsibility is often seen in the context of corporate business, or in relation to the general public. In art and design institutions, the creative practice can build and inform an individual's growth in mentality, maturity and responsibility in their thinking through making processes. This research employs autoethnography as a method to collect data for my PhD, as it relates learning to personal experience, the development of personal attributes, such as resilience, and their relation to social values such as Ren in Confucian social culture.
