Project Description

Indonesian Design Emerging is a project that brings together Indonesian and Australian designers, design writers, design teachers and design thinkers to work on sustainable futures. 

Building on established collaborations between designers in Indonesia (Sapu Upcycle, Spedagi and Magno) and Australia (Big Fag Press and Frontyard Projects) the project presents an exciting program of events, culminating in an exhibition and publication. The project focuses on the creative industries in resourceful and critical ways and draws on traditional cultural practices and new technologies. 

We invite you to get in touch and get involved. There will be workshops, talks, and exhibitions so there are plenty of ways to participate in the dynamic world of Indonesian Design Emerging. Let's design alternative futures together.  

The project will be launched by Sydney and Salatiga designers at Festival Mata Air, Banyubiru on February 20, 2016. http://www.festivalmataair.com/FMA/FMA_2016.html
