National Design Policy at Vivid Ideas
Thursday June 07 2012
If you’re in, near, or visiting Sydney before June 11, head down to Circular Quay and its surrounds over the next few days. While the huge success of Vivid Live has ended, the Lights and Ideas facets of the programs continue in spectacular form — interactive 3D lightshows on the outside and stimulating sessions inside await.
Last night a few Object staff headed to the newly-renovated top of the Museum of Contemporary Art for Driving Australian Design — what a national design policy could do for designers. Put on by the Australian Design Alliance (who recently had success with a Pozible fundraising campaign) as part of Vivid Ideas, the evening featured three speakers from across the design spectrum.
Help Make A National Design Policy A Reality
Tuesday March 20 2012
The Australian Design Alliance (AdA) is the umbrella organisation representing the design sector at a national level. It is a strategic partnership of design bodies across disciplines, with His Excellency Michael Bryce AM serving as Patron.
The AdA was formed to fulfil a need for a single, strong voice to champion design as a means to realise policy objectives in a broad range of fields, from digital innovation to healthcare, and from crime prevention to environmental sustainability.
Last week, the AdA launched a campaign on Pozible, the Australian crowdfunding platform, to help fund their advocacy for a national design policy. A not for profit industry alliance, the AdA relies on your support to be able to convince our political leaders in Canberra to create and fund a national design policy — the AdA’s number one priority.
