This platform shares ideas on design. It is a free resource for anyone interested in design and design thinking and how it can make a difference for design and society.
Through events, videos, and interviews we present ideas, experience, skills, knowledge and opportunities to connect with design practitioners, business leaders and researchers who are experts across design disciplines and industry sectors in the application of design that makes a difference to standards of living, to productivity and to economic prosperity.
We make connections between those looking to develop their knowledge and skills in design and design thinking and education providers in undergraduate, post graduate and professional development training and education. The content on this platform has been drawn from agIdeas events presented over 25 years in Melbourne Australia. agIdeas is one of the longest running and most well respected design programs in the world.
