Secondary school students are invited to visit artisan during Agency by Design, an exhibition that examines the role design plays in social and emotional well-being for people living with a disability. This exhibition features innovative Australian designs that explore how users and designers are expanding and adapting accessible products and solutions in ways previously unimaginable. Fuelled by advances in research, technology, and fabrication, the proliferation of functional, life-enhancing products is creating unprecedented access in homes, schools, workplaces, and the world at large.
artisan is offering the choice of a guided tour of the exhibition and/or take part in a design thinking workshop.
This opportunity is being offered in partnership with QUT Art Museum's Making visible program, which explores how we can deepen our understanding of vision, through an interactive tour of the exhibition plus a hands-on workshop. The exhibition, Vis-ability, draws on a selection of outstanding recent acquisitions from the QUT Art Collection and utilises innovative technologies to challenge our sight-driven experience of art. A centrepiece of the show is a tactile artwork created in co-design workshops led by the QUT Design Lab in collaboration with artists and industry experts.
School groups may choose to take part in tours and workshops at either artisan or QUT Art Museum, or participate in the full education program at both venues.
