ChangeX - Student eXhibition on Design for Change


"CHANGEX is an annual exhibition of student art + design works that address issues of sustainability, environmental responsibility, social equity and community. Now in its third year, the [2006] exhibition will be complemented by an expanded series of events of interest to young designers, professionals, and community members alike. Works showcased in the exhibition have been drawn from a wide range of design fields including industrial design, architecture and interiors, landscape, textiles, graphics, installation and multimedia. Retaining its emphasis on recent graduates, this year's exhibitors will also include high school students and current students from [across five Sydney Universities.] These diverse projects approach design as a tool for satisfying genuine human needs in ways that are both practical and imaginative, challenging the conventional expectations of the design industry and extending the boundaries of their discipline." The party commences Friday 3 March 2006. Come one, come all. ::ChangeX[Disclaimer: Somehow I find myself wearing the cap of deputy convenor for the Society for Responsible Design, the not-for-profit organisation hosting ChangeX. But don't let that put you off. This years event is chiefly the brainchild of the indefatigable Maddy Streicek, and her support crew.]
