Entitled 'Partnerships and Equalities', the conference included panels on partnerships and relationships between artists and the academy, equality and diversity, cultures of harassment and a shared keynote from Professor Stephen Lacey and Professor Kate Newey (the outgoing and incoming chair of SCUDD, respectively).

The conference included the sharing of some performance work made by current undergraduate students in the department.
