A day of workshops for Sneaky Minds

CATC Design School and Billy Blue College of Design have joined forces with with VIVID Sydney, City of Sydney, and a handpicked selection of local designers to stage an afternoon of workshops to address key issues affecting the community living in Sydney.

The event will take place on Saturday, 1st of June 2013 (from 1pm to 5pm) and while tickets are free they are strictly limited. By attending the event as a “Sneaky Mind”, your contributions and ideas will fire discussions and the generation of ideas to overcome the issues brought to light by the City of Sydney. These workshops are an opportunity for participants to give back to the community, raise awareness and contribute to the greater good of our Sydney community.

Here is a sneak peek at the briefs:

  • Brief 1: How can the City of Sydney entice and retain an older demographic (40+) into Sydney after dark?
  • Brief 2: How can the City of Sydney manage the impact of cumulative noise on residents, while maintaining or increasing cultural activity such as outdoor dining and live music?

The line up of facilitators for the event include: Matt Leach CATC Campus Director, Simon Pemberton Director of the School of IT Media & Design SIT, Zoe Pollitt Founder & Director at Eskimo, Nick De La Force Event Co-ordinator Apple Store, Louise Lammers Head Teacher Tafe Enmore, Glen Barry AGDA NSW President, Bravo Child Design Professional, Ben Miles from Interbrand, Lissa Barnum & Alexandra Mar from Peopleness.

The habourside design chambers at CATC Design School, Level 4, 1-5 Hickson Road, The Rocks, is being transformed for the day into the stage that will host the workshops.
