Master of Design Futures
Senior Curator, Department of Contemporary Design and Architecture, National Gallery of Victoria
Design has never before been so connected and ubiquitous, it is shaping the world at an unprecedented rate and scale, both for better and for worse.
“Design impacts on us all through our devices, homes, offices, politics, services and cities. It defines how we express ourselves, work, consume and connect. It shapes the ways in which we behave as a society, and increasingly frames the ways in which we address complex problems witnessed in the world around us.”
“In reaction to the growth in the complexity, interconnectedness, influence and ubiquity of design there is an urgent need for meaningful opportunities to understand, integrate and think about the future of design."
“We need new forms of design education that look at the world systemically so that designers can be truly integrative, equipped with the skills to unlock new forms of innovation, accelerate cultural expression, and imagine and create better ways of doing things”.
