Event: Am I a Designer? Sydney 21 Feb 2013

Social Innovation Sydney and COFA present


travelling the world to discover the impact of design and entrepreneurship on poverty reduction

Free Public Lecture with Jeroen Spolestra and Boukje Vastbinder

Both passionate designers, educators, researchers and entrepreneurs from the Netherlands, they have spent the last few months travelling 8 countries across Asia, Africa and South America visiting entrepreneurial and design related projects that claim to contribute to poverty reduction. Asking people around the world (professionals, end-users etc.) about their opinions on design, entrepreneurship and poverty. Collecting data to support or refute these assumptions and possibly even contributing a little bit to poverty reduction by sharing their own knowledge through workshops, advice, design, business development etc.

They will be talking about their experiences so far askingĀ  questions, meeting people, taking pictures, blogging, starting discussions, collaborating on real projects from both foreign and local companies, NGOs, enterprises and universities and enjoying all the beautiful landscapes & people they have met.

Sydney is the third stop on their trip and they are keen for the audience to ask questions, give feedback and enjoy the ride!
