Sarah Lugthart

I’m interested in toolkits for speculative design and how they can support design students and promote a more-than-human perspective.

Sarah Lugthart is a researcher within the Caradt research groups Biobased Art and Design, and Situated Art and Design. She is also Pathway Leader and tutor of the master’s programme Animation at the Master Institute of Visual Cultures.

Sarah Lugthart graduated in New Media and Digital Culture in 2004 from the University of Utrecht. She has been programme manager at different cultural institutions, such as bkkc (now Kunstloc), organising workshops, film screenings, and network meetings.

Since 2010 she has been working as a tutor at St. Joost School of Art & Design, lecturing on topics such as media theory and interactive storytelling. She was involved in the minor Research in Immersive Storytelling as a coordinator and tutor (a programme developed together with the Communication & Multimedia Design programme in Breda), and is more recently involved in the minor Arts & Interaction. As a Caradt researcher, she focuses on situated design, situated learning, immersive and speculative storytelling.

Alongside her work at the academy, Sarah is currently a member of the advisory committee of Immerse/Interact (Film Fund NL) and has also been a member of the Professional Arts Fund Committee (Subsidieregeling Professionele Kunsten), Brabant’s kenniscentrum voor kunst en cultuur (now Kunstloc), and an advisor on animation for Film Fund NL.
