AdA Design Meets NSW Parliament
NSW Parliament House
Macquarie St Sydney
|WHEN:||Tuesday Nov 22, 2011 09:30AM - 02:00PM|
The project, supported by the Australian Institute of Architects and the Faculty of Architecture Design and Planning at the University of Sydney, is entitled After Images (Zan Zou in Japanese), and will consist of a collection of sketches made by Australian architects and academics, capturing an impression of the rich architecture and culture of ancient and contemporary Japan, or documenting a design which was informed by an experience of Japanese architecture. The understanding of sketch is conceptually expanded beyond pen or pencil drawings on a page to encompass photographs, collages, water-colours or poems, all of which suggest immediate, unmediated impressions that are unfinished.
The exhibition of the sketches will be held at the Boutwell Draper Gallery in Sydney (www.boutwelldrapergallery.com.au ) as part of the gallery’s ongoing Art + Architecture series from Tuesday 25th October to Saturday the 29th October, with the auction event on the Friday evening.
The money that is raised through the auction itself and from sales of the catalogue will be collected by Emergency Architecture Australia in the first instance, who will then liase with a Japanese architectural aid organisation operating locally on the ground to support recovery efforts in Tohoku and Northern Kanto regions of Japan.

AIATSIS National Indigenous Studies Conference 2011
Young and old: connecting generations
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population is relatively young. In 2008, almost half (49%) of Australia's Indigenous population was aged under 20 years and a further 16% aged between 20 and 30 years with just 3% were aged 65 years and over.
The AIATSIS National Indigenous Studies Conference brings together multi-disciplinary expertise from across the Indigenous Studies sector, including researchers, policy makers, community members, academics, representative organizations, consultants, traditional owners and service providers. Whether your interest in the conference topic is from the perspective of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education, health, cultural heritage, arts, policy, sport, economics, language, anthropology, archives, IT or other equally relevant sectors, the conference presents a unique opportunity to communicate information about your research, projects and programs with a wide audience and to benefit from discussion around shared areas of interest.

Design-led Solutions to Wicked Problems
Presented by Australian Design Alliance
National governments around the world see design as critical to solving economic and social problems as well as developing a profile internationally for designers. Australia is just beginning to sit up and take notice of the contribution its designers have to make across the policy spectrum. This event will look at design-led solutions to major national issues. Using design-thinking techniques participants will interrogate the problems and discuss possible solutions. The Australian Design Alliance (AdA) is representing the design sector in consultations with the Federal Government on a national design policy for Australia. The AdA wants to show how designers can help to change the world with economically sustainable solutions to big picture policy issues from climate change to urban design, health policy and immigration issues. This event is for everyone with ideas about how design can make a difference to Australia’s future.
Speakers: Paul Pholeros, Lauren Tan and Marie O'Mahony
