In anthropology, the term liminality is the quality of ambiguity that occurs in the middle stage of a rite of passage. During a rite’s liminal stage, participants “stand at the threshold” between their previous way of structuring their identity, time, or community, and a new way, which completing the rite establishes.

LIMINAL—ITY is a fictitious design conference that explores this threshold in the context of ‘Art’ and ‘Design’. These practices are seen in such isolation, but yet each facilitates the other under when treated under practices of ’Critical Thinking and Critical Making’. Separating practices into separate categories is merely tactile; prescribed notions of what makes ‘Art, art’ and ‘Design, design’ are upheld in our current societal state. This is stunting growth, development and exploration for ‘bigger and better things’.

LIMINAL—ITY aims to discuss the emergent practitioners and practices that transcend this threshold, helping us transition into a needed ‘middle stage’ of interdisciplinary critical making, thinking and artistic practice for a better future. It aims to break down the dichotomies of ‘Art’ and ‘Design’ and ‘abroad’.
