Jefa Greenaway is the Director of Greenaway Architects, with more than two decades exploring the intersection of engagement, Indigeneity and the built environment across private, commercial and educational projects. Jefa is also a Lecturer at the University of Melbourne, focussing on Indigenous curriculum development. His project Ngarara Place was exhibited in the Australian pavilion at the 2018 Venice Biennale and he is the founding chair of the not-for-profit advocacy group Indigenous Architecture + Design Victoria, and co-author of the award winning International Indigenous Design Charter.

Presented as part of the popular DESIGN Canberra festival, Object Subject: 2019 National Design Writing Conference will build on the successful inaugural event, which inspired new conversations, connections and ideas, questioned the very role and responsibility of design, and resulted in the publication of a special issue of the international scholarly journal, Fusion.
