A WORLD IN MAKING 
CITIES  CRAFT  DESIGN
Guest edited by Suzie Attiwill

Following the recent closure of Craft Australia, the e-journal craft +
design enquiry has relocated to the Australian National University (ANU)
where it is hosted by the ANU School of Art (with Australia Council for
the Arts funding assistance) and will be published by ANU e-press
commencing with c+de#4 mid-year.

During this relocation period, information about craft + design enquiry
- past issues, policies, personnel and submission guidelines can still
be found on the Craft Australia website at www.craftaustralia.org.au/cde
By the end of this year, all archival material on c+de will be migrated
to the ANU and be available on the ANU e-press website at
www.epress.anu.edu.au 

To assist with relocation arrangements, the current Call for Papers
(c+de#5) has been extended to 30 October 2012 as outlined below. This
issue will be published by ANU e-press in mid-2013.

c+de#5 call for papers:
A WORLD IN MAKING 
CITIES  CRAFT  DESIGN
Guest edited by Suzie Attiwill

On 12 March 1913, a naming ceremony took place in an empty paddock on a
hill. This rural environment was to become a city, the capital city of
Australia, the city of Canberra. The aspirations and the projections of
the Griffins' winning design for Canberra are an example of a
world-in-making involving the practices of design and craft. This issue
of craft + design enquiry will be published in 2013 - 100 years after
this event and when, for the first time in history, more than half the
world's population lives in cities. By 2030, this will increase to at
least 60% with significant growth happening in cities of developing
countries and the emergence of meta-cities with 20 million inhabitants.
'The twenty-first century will be known as the century of the city'.
(Tibaijuka, 2010).

This issue of craft + design enquiry will focus on and highlight the
role, contribution and potential craft and design practices make to the
urban environment as well as the transformation of these practices * a
world in making.
'The thing is what we make of the world. ... Things are our way of
dealing with a world in which we are enmeshed rather than over which we
have dominion. ... It is our way of dealing with the plethora of
sensations, vibrations, movements, and intensities that constitute both
our world and ourselves' ... 'We make objects in order to live in the
world'. (Grosz, 2009, pp.126 & 128).

Nuances of craft - a practice which values making and materiality *
will be foregrounded in the selection of papers for publication. This
emphasis on craft does not exclude design so much as bring attention to
practices of design which engage ideas of making and materiality, where
there is a sense of a hand(s) in making, a valuing of haptic encounters
and an attention to the relation between people and surroundings. From
small to large scale projects, from individuals to communities, an
intimate approach to the question of how people inhabit and transform
the urban environment is invoked. What are the potentials in this
century of the city for craft and design practices? What is the
contribution of craft and design to cities and live-ability? What might
a craft sensibility bring to urban inhabitation? What of an expanded
idea of craft practice as a way of working and thinking which addresses
spatial and temporal urban conditions? What of the emergence of new
forms of practices to engage in the condition of the urban environment
and the social, political and cultural forces of the twenty-first
century?

Academics, practitioners, research students and others are invited to
submit research papers and critical project works. A definition of
research as 'the creation of new knowledge and/or the use of existing
knowledge in a new and creative way so as to generate new concepts,
methodologies and understandings* (Australian Research Council, 2011)
is reiterated here to highlight the criticality of 'new and creative' in
relation to research and to encourage the submission of research through
craft and design practice, as well as about craft and design practices
situated in a world in making - 'the century of the city'. Authors are
also encouraged to consider the inclusion of visual material as
research.
