Melbourne Design Week 2021
With the recent pandemic, our place of work has grown beyond the confines of location. With video calls the new vogue for working, home offices fashioned hastily and our local stores brimming with people, we’ve entered a new dichotomy between local and global — one that creates new tensions between our level of participation online, physically, locally, interstate and internationally.
Exploring this from a local, location confined community, the evening’s program will explore both the stories of local icons, their shift towards engaging different markets and the incoming pool of international expats bringing new cultural diversity and methods to our communities. Share a beer as we discuss, design and collaborate on principles for the future, local or not.
