2016 APSDA ADELAIDE VISION

Everyone has a relationship to home and what they mean in terms of belonging, family, comfort, nurture, tradition, familiarity and gathering. They are deeply ingrained in our memory. The conference theme of home brings together the real and the ordinary from which, through design, the imaginative and the extraordinary transpires and resonates. 2016 APSDA Adelaide aims to explore the theme of ‘home.’

2016 APSDA Adelaide aims to build upon the significance of home and open up ideas of making, making do and making happen through a series of place-centred events including
hosted design dinners, design expos, cultural events and a program of tours and student activities that capitalise on Adelaide’s scale, its neighbourhood, its design community and its regions. The speaker program will include world renowned and nationally prominent multi-disciplinary designers who have positioned their practises around the theme of home in inspired and poetic ways.

home is being part of a place, a geography, a region. It is being a part of the Asia Pacific and part of a design community. home can be reflected in the objects we surround ourselves with and the things we use. ‘Home’ is the spaces we create.

The 2016 APSDA conference home signifies the value that the host city, Adelaide invests in these themes and validates APSDA as more than an organisation, but a family, a close knit community of practising designers.

Adelaide welcomes you to the place we call home to share, celebrate and create new memories and design networks.
