Description

TACSIFEST is a series of events sharing The Australian Centre for Social Innovation's latest work in child protection, ageing and disability, exploring what it takes to co-design policy and services, build innovative organisations and innovate across systems.

Events are taking place in The Australian Centre for Social Innovation’s home town of Adelaide, in Sydney in advance of opening our office there and here in Melbourne at our local office with partners TDi.

TACSIFEST Melbourne comprises 3 distinct sessions. You can come to one, two or all three.


9-11am: Children, families, co-design and adaptive systems

Co-design innovation might be flavour of the month, but what is it, what does it take to do well, where does it go wrong and when does it reach it’s limits? Drawing on 6 years of work in child protection and family services TACSI will share their structured approach to developing new services, creating the conditions for innovation and their ideas for building and adaptive systems to help children thrive.

11am-1pm: Ageing, housing and prototyping policy

Could prototyping reduce the risk of policy failure and increase the chance of policy success?

This session will explore how TACSI plan to prototype policy as part of their Innovation Age initiative which is accelerating the development of the next generation of services and supports for Australia’s baby boomers.

• Reducing the risk of policy failure;

• Ageing and baby boomers;

• Housing.


2-5pm: Disability and designing customer driven business models

How can disability service providers expand their customer base and find sustainable business model under NDIS? This session will share elements of three workshops that were co-designed with 18 South Australian disability organisations. Learn about how to use user centred design and the business model canvas to understand your potential customers, build a sustainable business model.

This event is for anyone interested in:

• Building NDIS readiness capability;

• Disability services;
