Event description

Join us for our first annual DAB Futures Symposium to be held alongside the graduate exhibition for UTS Design, Architecture & Built Environment (DAB) Faculty, where 500+ exceptional projects will be on show from our students of Architecture & Landscape Architecture, Animation, Fashion & Textiles, Photography, Interior Architecture, Product Design and Visual Communications.

In order to open up critical conversation about design and architecture practices and processes here at UTS, we are pairing up five insightful external guests with five academics from the faculty. After touring the exhibition, the pairs will discuss the core themes, topics and highlights raised by what they experienced in the context of their own fields.

Introduced by Elizabeth Mossop
DAB Faculty Dean

Moderated by Cameron Tonkinwise
Director, Design Innovation Research Centre
