agideas 2011 international design week

in

agideas ist ein Design Festival mit Tradition. Eine Woche lang wird Melbourne, Australien zum Designmittelpunkt.

Workshops, Vorträge, geöffnete Türen zu Designstudios, Informationen für die Jüngsten und natürlich viel gute Laune bei diversen Parties. Am anderen Ende der Welt, aber vielleicht doch eine Überlegung wert, ansonsten werden die Vorträge auch online für die nicht Anwesenden übertragen.

Vortragende sind unter anderem: Susan Bond (USA), Oslo Davis (Australien), Sascha Lobe (Deutschland), Iain McCaig (USA), Fanette Mellier (Frankreich), Ken Miki (Japan), Per Mollerup (Dänemark), Frances Rings (Australien) und Wout de Vinger (Niederlande).
Wie es dort letztes Jahr zugegangen ist könnt ihr euch hier ansehen.

Studio Access
Young designers registered for agIdeas have the opportunity to visit Melbourne’s leading design studios.

Design Research Lab
A one day forum for design educators, researchers and practitioners to present design research papers to their peers. It aims to create awareness of new knowledge in the areas of multidisciplinary design practice and its benefits, and the relationship between design practice and education.

Next
A new event, agIdeas 2011 Next is a program of activities aimed at encouraging primary age children to become champions of good design. Primary schools from across Melbourne have been invited to register a team of their most innovative students across ages to participate in this one day event. The activities include a short forum with internationally renowned designer Ken Cato, Cato Purnell Partners. Each team will visually express their ideas on large ‘puzzle’ pieces that will be fitted together to form a public artwork in the form of a giant sculptural mural.
