Sex and politics, dreams and religion: just a few of the topics to be discussed at Denfair 2018, which is returning to Melbourne this June and heading to Sydney in August. Denfair will feature more than 350 curated brands and artists, catering to designers, architects, interior stylists and appreciators of good design.
Through support and advocacy, the people behind Denfair want to educate the broader community about how good design can make a difference in our rapidly changing environment. Therefore, the Melbourne event will be open to the public on 16 June (Sydney public date TBC). Everyone is invited to come and see what good design really is, and its potential to have a positive impact.
Our highlights include the talks ‘Responsibility: Designing and Communicating Ethically’ and ‘Rebellion: Breaking the Golden Rules of Design’. See the full program for Melbourne and Sydney to find something that captures your imagination.
