Dr Landé Pratt

About

I lead MSc in Project Management for Creative Practitioners at the Kingston School of Art, Kingston University.  The focus of the course being design and agile project management for practitioners across a range of creative sector industries.  An application of critical thinking in these areas of professional practice is encouraged. 

I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and use a critical pedagogy, which engages learning with and through multiple intelligences and learning styles. My approach is practice and applied led and, is culturally sensitive and inclusive. As a trained barrister, I use legal practice knowledge in industry based work as creative practitioner/agent-representative/educator.  My current research focus is on legal matters for creatives, specifically smart(er) contracts and the ‘rare' digital art space, exploring their challenges and opportunities, particularly in relation to disintermediation, empowerment, representation, and regulatory (un)certainty.  I have been exploring intersections between design, creative agency, technology and law.  My consulting practice includes work on creative legal, legal tech and, the value of lean and agile management within design projects. I  represent and mentor a select group of artists/designers internationally and in the UK.

Prior to my time at Kingston University, I project managed the British Film Institute's flagship site screenonline.org.uk, a digital archive focusing on the history of British film and television.
