And; then. Design, design research, and the Practice Research Symposium as an incubator of future practice

Practice Research Symposium exhibition opening and joint keynote address by Professor Mark Jacques, RMIT University, and Dr Gwyllim Jahn, Creative Director of Fologram. This presentation is a special event of the DSC Doctoral Research Conference program.

Celebrate the opening of the Practice Research Symposium (PRS) Australia with a welcome reception in the Design Hub Gallery. Join us for networking opportunities with our community of practice researchers and to view the research of our PhD and Masters by Research examination candidates. 

The PRS official welcome and keynote will then take place in the Design Hub Lecture Theatre at 6:45pm. The keynote will feature presentations by Dr Mark Jacques and Dr Gwyllim Jahn, both recent graduates of the Design Practice PhD program at RMIT University. 

Professor Vivian Mitsogianni, Dean of RMIT's School of Architecture and Urban Design will introduce and moderate the discussion as Marl and Gwyllim reflect on their experiences of the PRS, including beginning points, the trajectory of their candidature and the outcomes that emerged from their research. The discussion will explore the distinction and overlaps between industry and the academy in the context of design practice research, the specific ways the speakers have been able to leverage their engagement across both for mutual benefit, and how the PhD has catalysed the next phase of their practice.
