Career Creations Beyond the Known, a forum centred around a panel discussion on design education and creative career pathways. The world has shifted. Our future career paths will be mobilised, blended and responsible. No more silos, we need to embrace diversity! Our future careers fuse traditional bespoke methodologies, social consciousness and global virtual engagement.
Design Director, advocate and academic leader, Karen Webster, will lead the panel joined by globally awarded Creative Director, Carlo Pagoda, internationally renowned illustrator Angie Rehe and multidisciplinary Sculptor and Designer, Michael Gittings. Our roles as creatives will evolve to offer customised and personalised options for discerning and socially responsible customers. Each speaker will explore the dynamic role of contemporary careers in design and the future of the industry. These future career paths extend beyond what we know today, the blurring of bespoke and virtual sees the rise of the digital creative artisans.
All attendees will receive advice on thriving within the design industry and are encouraged to bring along a portfolio or passion project to share and develop with the panel speakers. The interactive forum provides an opportunity to hear a diverse group of experts share their professional experiences and advice at LCI Melbourne in Collingwood, the centre of Melbourne’s design culture. Following the forum, all attendees are invited to continue the discussion and workshop their folios in the LCI Melbourne Gallery.
