Event Description

Since this year is the inaugural launch of CWID, we’ve decided to kick things off with a bit of controversy. 2016 marks the beginning of our seminar series – this year entitled Westward Ho! – covering all hot-topic issues and debates currently making waves in A+D today. 

All attendees will receive:
* 1.5 Formal CPD Point
* the latest issue of Indesign Magazine

Design Democracy: ! or ?
The way the public perceives design is often very different to how the industry perceives it. This comes as no shock whatsoever. With huge projects like the New Museum or the revamped Perth Stadium on the cards, the design discussion in WA is not in the studio: it’s on the street. What does designing for the public sphere actually mean? Is this sphere the only public? Meanwhile, in Europe, there is heated debate on the designer-side too. With landmark legislation that attempts to finally do away with ‘the replica’, democracy in design has come full circle to include the politics of production. When we talk about democracy in design, just how far-reaching are the ramifications? 

Moderator: David Congram, Indesign Media
