The six part WorkLife Seminar Series has been announced for Melbourne Indesign 2016, featuring discussions spanning the breadth of the design industry.
April 27th, 2016
Over six varied panel discussions, a range of global design trailblazers and thought leaders will share their knowledge, experience and journeys with our visitors.
This year, we’re proud to announce the following WorkLife panel discussions…
The Gender Imbalance – How can design we really say that we’re delivering diverse solutions when there are so few women in leadership roles? How can architecture and design close the wide gap between men and women’s representation at the top?
Experimentation in Design – If we focus too strongly on commercial outcomes, are we killing the power of our individuality? Is design hard and fast rules or is it art?
Are we fed up with Fame? – Is celebrity still a valuable currency in the business of design and do so-called starchitects use this celebrity to safeguard themselves from criticism?
Who hired the Project Manager? – It’s hard work coordinating a design project, so why is the project manager seen as the villain of the design process?
Designing for the Public – How the public perceives design often differs to how the industry does, so how is designing for the public different from designing for the private sphere?
The War for Talent – How do working environments foster a sense of community in the workplace and what responsibility do we have for designing mood or feeling in workspaces?
We’re very exciting to welcome you to these talks held across Melbourne this 12th of August.
