National Context workshops

2019 – National Context workshops facilitated by the AdA and developed to provide the AdA with an opportunity to engage directly with members of the Design industry to obtain a snapshot of the current landscape of the state of Design in Australia.

Expert industry professionals participated and contributed across five Australian Capital Cities, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. The workshop followed four key activities to identify the issues:

  • Observation: Collective brainstorming to understand the current landscape.
  • Mapping: Documenting the issues to determine commonalities across the sectors.
  • Value: Identifying the critical issues for the industry.
  • Action: What could be done to address the key issues facing the Australian Design industry.
