Make Trouble. Design for Change

“The general perception I have is that design can function in culture and has a social role that cannot be only about selling goods" - Milton Glaser  

Join Oxfam Australia’s Design for Change for a morning of trouble-making with some of the biggest creative agencies out there.

We will hear from four trouble makers from creative agencies who have developed award-winning campaigns that have inspired us to be part of movements to help solve some of the world’s biggest problems.

Each speaker has 10 minutes to present their vision for how design is being used to solve a social issue. Following each speaker’s presentation join us for a panel discussion exploring innovative ways design can be catalyst for community building and civic action.

The event invites Vince Frost of Frost*collective, Tim Buesing of Reactive, Murray Bunton of Agency and Kelsey Schwenk of Studio Thick to talk, debate and argue about design and social activism.

If you’re inspired by design and know that design can be used to activate social change, then this event is for you.
