How can interdisciplinary collaborations tackle complex health, environmental and economic challenges?

Through the contribution of new ideas, angles or expertise, collaborations between designers, artists and engineers can provide effective ways to problem solve our largest issues and advance technology. From 3D printed coral reefs to groundbreaking medical implants, these collaborations are diverse and unexpected.

Join us at the Powerhouse Museum to hear a panel of Australian experts discuss their careers and some of the unlikely collaborations they have been involved in.

Panelists include 3D print specialist and architect Dr James Gardiner, research-leader at the Creative Robotics Lab, UNSW Art and Design, Kate Dunn and Principle curator and curator of the Out Of Hand exhibition, Matthew Connell. Moderated by Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences Curator Nina Earl.
