The concepts of Indigenous life are now part of every successful business, it’s just that most people do not see this. They don’t see the corroboree, the waterhole, storytelling, dreaming, walkabout in the office, but these elements are being incorporated into all modern office designs.

Winya draws this unique vision of first Australia into today in a very hands-on lecture program for Sydney Design Festival in its new City Center showroom.

In this talk, Director Greg Welsh will discuss cultural messages and symbolism to aid designers to respectfully include Indigenous design into their projects. Designers will also gain understanding on how they can incorporate Indigenous design concepts to make your office spaces more vital and effective.

Winya is Australia’s leading Indigenous owned office furniture manufacturer, the first ever Australian winner of the United Nations Award for global leadership for Sustainable Development and winner of the Australian Sustainability Award in 2018.

1 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points are available to architects upon attendance to this event.
