2017 THEME :
DESIGN FOR SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT

 

The intention of the 2017 topic Design for Social Engagement is to enable different perspectives and approaches to how we make a difference in the world.

Design for Social Engagement will present a dynamic group of professional women who talk on their experiences, social engagement, how they have utilised different approaches, tools, frameworks and mechanisms to capture and demonstrate social value and social impact in their practice.

JOIN US FOR ANOTHER GREAT LINE UP OF WOMEN IN DESIGN FOR 2017

 

The annual Women in Design Colloquium is devoted to supporting an all-female speaker event, in the field of contemporary design. After two successful years, Women in Design has attracted professional and emerging participants from all over Australia to converge in Launceston Tasmania, creating an intimate environment for succession, discussion and professional development.

Those with positive influence understand the power of relationships, connection, and engaging with the world openly. They not only obtain amazing results in their work, but their process of obtaining these results, how they operate in life, is inspiring and uplifting.
