« The State of Design Festival is Victoria’s peak design event. The Festival will cover many cross-disciplinary design agendas relating to the profession of design and the marketplace that it provides to.
The Festival offers both local and international conversations on design, with a focus on design from across Victoria.
Through partner organisations and brand alliances the Festival links Victorian design into the global design conversation, offering an understanding of the Victorian design context, the opportunities and the successes.
Under one Festival umbrella the best local designers will be honoured through the Premier’s Design Awards, others will be discovered at our trade fair, Design Made Trade. Get involved and unearth metropolitan and regional talents in our satellite program Design for Everyone, or come and listen as some of the world’s most esteemed designers and design-focused business leaders share their knowledge and insight at the design and business conference Design Capital.
Come and see why Victoria is Australia’s centre for design excellence and Melbourne, its design capital.
The State of Design Festival 2008 will shape Australia’s design future. Join in and be inspired. »
From July 16 to July 28 2008
