Sydney Design Festival returns in 2019, with the theme ACCESSING DESIGN.
ACCESSING DESIGN seeks to promote responsive design that gives voice to diverse Sydney communities, and asks designers to broaden the definition of design to expand the dialogue between creative practice, access and inclusivity.
With an emphasis on the democratisation of design, the Sydney Design Festival is seeking a broad representation and involvement from both established and emerging design practitioners and interdisciplinary creative practices.
ACCESSING DESIGN asks the design community to question and contemplate their creative practice:
- Who are they designing for and how can audiences access this?
- What is the role of design in creating a more accessible world? How can we all be more open and inclusive with our approach to design?
The 2019 festival will champion process and experimentation, exploring the in-between and cross-disciplinary nature of design. We are seeking expression of interest for design related programs from all areas of design, get involved!
