Can Design Save the World?
13 October 2021
An exploration of our future.
Bio-concrete, salvaged timber, leather made from fruit peels: the design world is turning its eyes to sustainable and salvaged material use. In parallel, the burgeoning circular economy movement urges industry to eliminate waste, keep products and materials in use, and regenerate natural systems. Can clever, thoughtful, deliberate designing and making change our future in a resource-depleted world? And what does this look like today in Tasmania?
13 October 2021, 6pm – 7pm: Central Gallery, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery
