Design Politics.

An online conference for change makers

June 16, 17 & 18 2020

Each session is repeated twice per day, making it easier for our international audience to attend.

Brought to you by our friends

Design is the act of making change through putting products and services into the world. There are always politics in design — within project teams, studios, client stakeholders, impact on the environment, culture and society.

In an age of perpetual design sprints, Design Politics is a chance to spend much-needed time thinking about and discussing the complexities of design.

The conference mixes together people from design and other disciplines to broaden the conversation, explore diverse views and create opportunities to apply a mix of thinking and doing with world-class practitioners leading and facilitating.

Attendees will return to their daily roles fully-charged and ready to apply new learnings with new perspectives to their organisations.
