To coincide with the Public Engagement and Impact: Articulating Value in Art and Design symposium (23 May 2013) at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (see ICA pages), the ROTOЯ team made a short film about the programme:

ROTOЯ is a programme of exhibitions, public events and talks at Huddersfield Art Gallery featuring the transdisciplinary work of art and design staff from the University of Huddersfield. ROTOЯ showcases a community of artists, designers and curators whose ideas and connective practices migrate and span artistic production, techno-design research, craft and cultural studies. ROTOЯ is located at the pivot between art and design disciplines and society, where points of intersection and engagement are considered and debated from multiple perspectives. The programme signals a unique partnership between Huddersfield Art Gallery and the University of Huddersfield to present a broad spectrum of practices and dialogues. Each exhibition features a number of public events in the form of artist/designer and curator talks, student ambassador tours, reading groups and film screenings. A publication of critical essays reviewing the ROTOЯ programme will be available from winter 2012.

For further details about the ROTOЯ programme please contact: Dr Catriona McAra ( or Professor Steve Swindells (
