Thanks to Sammantha Parsons at Studio Sam, who told me about the Artichoke Night School’s third edition just in time!

Artichoke Night School is a series of free forums expanding on the design focus of the current issue of Artichoke magazine.

In a discussion around architecture and design, last night’s speakers included: Ewan McEoin, Creative Director of Unlimited: Designing for the Pacific (the Design Triennial coming to Brisbane in October), appropriately discussing the role of Australian design within the wider Asia Pacific region and design as solution to real-world needs; Marc Harrison, designer and founder of Husque who spoke about the long journey to creating his successful products, exporting and the perception of Australian brands overseas; and Jodie Cox, Curatorial Team Manager at Urban Art Projects (UAP) who provided insight into UAP’s recent and high-profile international projects – KAUST in Saudi Arabia and the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai.

I’m thrilled that there are so many events with such talented and generous speakers in Brisbane. Many thanks to Penny Craswell, Artichoke’s Editor for mediating the event and to Artichoke and Zenith Interiors for presenting this series. Also thanks to all the other dedicated organisations, businesses and not-for-profits that continue to keep the design dialogue energised at a local level.
