With a power-packed line-up of speakers, the Perspectives talk series is kicking off again for 2017. Beginning with the theme ‘change’, the first event for the year will feature Isabelle Toland and Amelia Holiday of Aileen Sage Architects, alongside Bianca Pineda of ASPECT Studios and three art curators – Barbara Flynn, Katrina Dunn-Jones and Aarna Fitzgerald Hanley.
The Perspective series aims to bring together creatives from various disciplines to inspire a community of like-minded peers.
“We believe that the nature of the design industry has shifted from a singular focused expertise to a broad engagement with cross-disciplinary practice – we know architects that dabble in ceramics, artists who design jewellery, graphic designers studying film, and restaurateurs investing in interior design while simultaneously contributing to the vision of our future cities.”
One vital point of difference is that all speakers involved are women, giving the voices of creative females a chance to be heard.
