Colloquia Sundays — Session Three



Enter the Designer: Using Discarded Materials in Mainstream Practice


The world has a problem with waste. Discarded materials continue to pervade our oceans and landfills, presenting an omnipresent challenge… or opportunity?

Though many creatives have capitalised on waste materials for art and upcycled consumer goods, this sometimes only delays a predestined journey to landfill. The opportunity for discarded materials to enter mainstream industry to be used in regenerative, lasting ways still prevails... Enter the designer.

Join us as we discuss the designer’s responsibility in adopting discarded materials. Queensland’s new container deposit scheme and other local initiatives are recovering our resources creating a new market of high quality, separated discarded materials. How can designers access these materials for mainstream practice?



Not your average Sunday session. Colloquia Sundays are friendly, collaborative social conversations with evolving monthly themes. Local community, students and academics gather for open knowledge production and sharing, led by a moderator and panel.

1.00pm - 2.00pm ––– Moderator led Q&A with panel
2.00pm - 2.30pm ––– Break: refresh, reflect and resume
2.30pm - 3.30pm ––– Audience driven collaborative conversation
