What Did You Miss At CUSP?

CUSP: Designing into the Next Decade might have just closed at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre ahead of traveling the country until 2015, but if you missed out on any of the public programs, events, or the exhibition itself, you can still engage with much of what went on.

All of the Designer Bodies talks and Talks In Transit were recorded and are available as podcasts, and don’t forget there is a wealth of information on the designers and the program at the CUSP website. Keep reading to find out how you can find the various elements.

Below are links to each of the elements for CUSP, however you can also find them all on Object on iTunes U, where you can also subscribe to the CUSP: Designing into the Next Decade collection to keep up to date as more and more is added over coming years.
