Pathways to working in the Humanitarian Sector
An introductory course for Built Environment Professionals
Architects without Frontiers (AWF) and the Australian Red Cross have developed a training course that introduces built environment professionals to the humanitarian sector and identifies pathways for future work experience in development and post-disaster scenarios.
The course is aimed at mid-career design and construction professionals who are interested in getting more involved in the humanitarian sector.
This 2 day intensive course is facilitated by experienced experts in humanitarian design and construction.
The first course was successfully held in Melbourne in 2012.
We will be offering two courses in 2013, the first will be in Sydney on the 22nd and 23rd of June.

WorldSkills Leipzig 2013 Conference
WorldSkills Leipzig 2013 Conference Program

It will focus on opportunities and risks for young people on their path to education and employment in a globalized world. Lasting employability in emerging economies, new industries and services as well as increasing mobility demand a different view on the facilitation of required abilities and qualifications of young generations.

CUSP: Designing into the next decade
From data to health, architecture to fashion, and in many unexpected spaces in between, who is working on the ’cusp’ of thinking in their field, and what is driving their work?A collection of designers from a broad range of design areas.
With a forward-looking bent, CUSP: Designing into the Next Decade recognises that design can evolve, and that, while outcomes are always desired, often it is the process that provides the greatest illustration. For this reason, CUSP will be anchored by a set of ideas, or ‘visions’, of what drives each designer. Rather than being about objects, CUSP becomes about practice.
CUSP has been imagined and developed as a three-year creative program, with seven physical iterations around Australia from early 2013 to early 2015. In addition to the exhibition, which will spotlight some outcomes emblematic of each designer’s practice, there will be ways for audiences to directly engage and interact with the designers and the ideas that guide their work.
