Designing Bright Futures 2018

When:
Every day until Sat 22 Dec 2018
Cost:
Free
Details:
Spanning jewellery, textiles, graphics, object, interactive and spatial design these new designers consider social and environmental impacts and speak to their vision of what it means to be a designer today.

An exhibition celebrating the optimism, ideas and ambitions of the next generation of designers and makers, Designing Bright Futures continues Australian Design Centre’s commitment to supporting the work of makers and designers at this early stage of their careers.

The designers are: Chloe Boudib, Samantha Dickens, Hannah Goddard, Meghan Kelly, Boyd Ison, Jo Jarosinska, Matilda Roberts, Marisa Suen, Ivana Taylor, Jenny Tin, Julie Toke and Kirra Weingarth.

These young designers are grappling with what it means to be a designer in a time when we are all contemplating the big issues such as climate change, urban growth, minimisation of waste, ageing populations and reconciling our Indigenous heritage and colonial past. A focus on these issues is liberating design from its commercial role in the industrial age and redefining it as a discipline of resourcefulness, instinct and ingenuity.

The designers were selected by a curatorial panel: Lisa Cahill (ADC), Stephen Goddard (UNSW Art & Design) and designer Henry Wilson.

Australian Design Centre is proud to be a creative place located on Gadigal Land. We acknowledge the traditional owners, the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation.
