How might we celebrate and design Brisbane’s future identity through community empowerment?
Think Outside is an annual talk series which invites local, national and international design thinkers to contemplate a problem outside their area of expertise, offering new and unexpected solutions for discussion.
As the world turns its attention on Brisbane for the G20 Summit, we’re taking the opportunity to consider how we might approach the future of this city through a design lens.
At the first event in the 2014 series we ask Professor Herman Pi’ikea Clark, Director of Tokorau Institute of Indigenous Innovation (New Zealand), Paul Pholeros, Architect and Director of Healthabitat (Sydney) and John MacDonald from Lightspace & Brisbane Heritage (Brisbane) to consider how we might celebrate and design Brisbane’s future identity through community empowerment.
Utilising the collective visioning model of The Queensland Plan, together we can help design the Brisbane of tomorrow, through community engagement and collaboration. But how does that engagement take place and what would it look like? What can we do to make sure people’s voices are heard as we transform into a vibrant and prosperous city of the future?
Each speaker will have 10 minutes to present their ideas, setting the platform for a considered debate and discussion around the practical implications of these new ideas. The audience will be invited to respond to the challenge prior to the event and to share their thoughts as part of the final debate and discussion.
Date: Tuesday 14 October
Time: 6.30pm - 8pm (networking drinks from 5.30pm)
Where: Auditorium 1, State Library of Queensland

Take down your lecture notes with a Design Offline Journal!
The Design Offline Journal is designed to help you experience design lectures and events in new and more meaningful ways.
We have designed six different lecture prompts that will challenge you to engage in lectures in different ways, and hopefully learn something new. Although we’ve made it easy to continue to take notes like you always have, why not be open and curious to doing things a little differently? You’ll find the different prompts arranged by a number on the right of the page. Work from start to finish or pick a random number. Choose your own adventure!
Design Offline can be purchased with tickets to the Think Outside series.
In order to purchase these tickets in installments, you'll need an Eventbrite account. Log in or sign up for a free account to continue.
