The 'Creative Industries, Creative Solutions' Research Project is a collaboration between the Graphic Design Programme in the Department of Visual Communication Design (DVCD) at the Durban University of Technology (DUT), South Africa; and the 'Continuum' unit of the University of East London (UEL), United Kingdom, which focuses on access and widening participation in tertiary education. The British Council has funded the project through their Educational Partnerships in Africa (EPA) programme. The Project aims to set up a working graphic design studio within the Graphic Design Programme as a means of widening participation and developing work-integrated learning (WIL) elements in the courses offered by DVCD. In this studio, students will experience the commercial process from briefing to production, including financial processes, in a protected and mentored environment.
