Dance for Life is a rare opportunity for the architecture and design community to really let its hair down and party – all for a good cause. 2018’s dance celebration was no exception.
June 19th, 2018
Brought to the design scene from TCW, Instyle and ThinkingWorks, Dance for Life is a dance event and competition that brought over 700 enthusiastic members of Sydney’s architectural and design industry together, all in the name of Mental Health. Having a dance and raising money for Reach Out, which provides support and practical assistance for teenagers struggling with depression, anxiety and suicide, the Dance for Life 2018 event was the biggest and boldest iteration of the event so far!
This year, designers and employees from Greenbox Architecture, The Bold Collective, Hassell, Geyer, Curio, Billard Leece Partnership, Crone Architects and Stack, Smart Design Studio, COX, and Rothelowman put their wallets, and feet, where their mouths were and come together to raise over $70,000 for Reach Out – all while partying and revelling in the dance spotlight. The team are still taking donations now – so if you want to chip in something for a great cause, please do!
Ultimately though, it was Hassell who took out the gold medal with an inspired and exciting performance.
TCW, Instyle and and ThinkingWorks would like to congratulate all who participated, and thank the official Dance For Life Platinum Sponsors – Armstrong Flooring and iGuzzini, Gold Sponsor – JDV projects, and Silver Sponsors – FDC and Tongue ‘n’ Groove.

Ad agencies have come a long way since the days depicted on Mad Men. Buzzing, energetic and always looking for the next big idea, it only follows that the workplace design for them should help spark inspiration. J. Walter Thompson’s (JWT) new Bangkok office by Orbit Design does exactly that.
