The Co-Design Symposium has sold out! If you'd like to get onto our mailing list to hear about how the event goes, learn about the work we do in co-design or hear about future events like this, please contact us or sign up for further information.
In a time of decreasing trust and relevance, the public purpose sector is responding through more open and collaborative approaches. Co-design, design thinking and/or human-centered design are practices that enable the public purpose sector to work alongside citizens, not for them.
Are you ready to join a community of practitioners changing the system from within?
Who is this for?
As emerging leaders in the space of design, our future as a community of practitioners will be about considering the nature of the challenges at hand and deploying the best methods, mindsets and materials to work swiftly, collaboratively and impactfully.
This event is for those who work in:
Philanthropy and business sectors
Co-design and design practitioners
Social service delivery
“Co-designing is inherently interdisciplinary — we all need to learn from each other. Everyone brings to co-designing a unique set of expertise and inevitable gaps in their skillset. At the heart of this symposium is the reciprocity that fuels collaborative designing. For Monash it’s a gift to partner with Peer Academy to provide a knowledge sharing platform where the designer hones their collaborating-with-people skills and expert facilitators learn some new, playful, co-creation strategies.”
Learn from some of Melbourne's leading design practitioners across all sectors of government, non-for-profits and other organisations. They will bring expertise from a variety of practices and disciplines.
