'Design Futures' is an informative way for 2,500 secondary school students to discover the different design disciplines and choose a course that best suits their skills and interests. In a two-hour presentation, creative leaders share illuminating stories about what it's like to build a career in their specific field of expertise. Design Futures assists students in the transition from secondary to the tertiary education sector and explores pathways to a career in a broad range of design disciplines including communication design, branding and identity, product and industrial design, interactive and multimedia design and design for the built environment.
agIdeas is one of the longest running and highly respected design programmes in the world. The programme is the brainchild of celebrated Australian designer and visionary Ken Cato, who curates the programme with support from an advisory group of 50 international design leaders. The programme evolved with endorsement from Alliance Graphique Internationale AGI, one of the world's most prestigious design industry bodies after the first meeting of AGI in Australia in 1991.
