MASTERCLASSES

Masterclasses are a slower, in-depth learning experience with a leading global practitioner and a small group of like-minded participants. Upskill in an emerging design practice like: Design for Sustainability, Co-design, Futures Thinking, or System Design.

These are 2-3 days each, and are running over 11-13 November in the lead up to the conference. Places are strictly limited to ensure everyone gets a substantial amount of time with the facilitator.
