The QUT Design Lab is partnering with the Positive Mindset Creative Arts Festival to bring you the Positive Mindset by Design competition.

About this Event

The Queensland University of Technology and the QUT Design Lab is partnering with the Positive Mindset Creative Arts Festival to bring you the inaugural Positive Mindset by Design competition.

All students across primary and secondary schools are invited to take part in creating a product, a concept or simply an idea for a technological product, APP or invention that would help to promote mental wellbeing in young people. Just the idea is enough, it does not have to be a reality…..yet.

Submit the idea in a PowerPoint presentation under ten slides (PPT or JPEG files) by Friday 13 September, to MSAMHS_arts-festival@health.qld.gov.au , with the subject of ‘PM by Design’, your name, age and school (e.g. PM by Design – Jane John, 17, Wellness State High School).

Finalists will be selected based on ORIGINALITY, reference to POSITIVE MENTAL HEALTH and PRESENTATION. They will then be invited to present their idea to an audience at QUT on Tuesday, 1 October 2019, where an overall Positive Mindset by Design Champion will be crowned.

Guardian/parental consent is essential to take part. By taking part you will also be providing consent for you and your designs to be videoed and photographed.

QUT Design Week

The inaugural QUT Design Week 2019 is an opportunity to learn, engage with, and be inspired by design research, innovation and creativity. Over four days, leading researchers, designers, policymakers, industry professionals, health and urban stakeholders in the Asia Pacific region will exchange insights and ideas, build connections, and critically reflect on the intersection of design, technology, communities, and health.

There are free events, IMPACT Design Exhibition and ticketed workshops, presentations and the Change by Design Asia-Pacific Symposium. Find out more information and register for QUT Design Week 2019 on our Event Registration page.
