Exploring the way design speaks to us, and the way we speak about design, the inaugural national design writing conference will be held at Roy Grounds’ iconic 1959 Shine Dome as a signature DESIGN Canberra event. For the first time, designers, writers, critics, bloggers, researchers, collectors, makers, curators and design lovers will come together to explore the creative and important ways that writing has become essential to the future of design.
Featuring internationally acclaimed design critic Alice Rawsthorn (New York Times, Frieze magazines) and Dana Tomic Hughes, interior designer, curator and editor of Yellowtrace, one of the world’s most influential design blogs.
The conference will be followed by a Research Forum, presented in partnership with the University of Canberra on Sunday 11 November.
