Designing Futures began in 2001. It has since become a successful mode of engaging WA’s design community while offering focused networking, training and mentoring opportunities outside of conventional design education avenues.
Each cluster focus is adapted to address different gaps in knowledge and learning – from initial product concepts and development, through to more advanced business mentoring or market placement.
In 2009, FORM adopted a less formal approach with Designing Futures, preferring to support individual creatives based at Midland Atelier in furthering their practices, and facilitating mentorships for emerging talent though residencies and workshops with established interstate and international designers.
