The Emerging Designers Festival
The Emerging Designers Festival, hosted by Gray Puksand, will include presentations by emerging design students and an interactive discussion from Gray Puksand's Partner and National Sector Lead Nik Tabain. A selection of students will have the opportunity to present their concept answering this year's question: As Melbourne expands to reach a projected population of 8 million by 2050, how will we reinvent, re-purpose and adapt our city to live better together?
One lucky student will be awarded the winner and be offered the opportunity to participate in a three-month internship at Gray Puksand.
Join us at Gray Puksand's studio for an exhibition and conversation between emerging design students and partners of Gray Puksand, answering this year's proposed theme and question.
Today's youth will one day inherit the custodianship of Naarm. Gray Puksand aims to dissolve the generational divide by 'radically welcoming' students to contribute their ideas for solving future problems of the city. The presentations and conversations with students and partners will foster meaningful conversations between different generations to help shape our city for the future.
