Join for an evening panel discussion on design and ethics for Melbourne Design Week 2021 ‘Design the world that you want’.

The panel forms part of the exhibition ‘The dangerous power of speculation’ by Lucy West which invites participants to design the future by responding to ethical dilemmas leveraging speculative design.

The exhibition presents a visual feast of alternate realities to prime your choices, exploring topics like surveillance and AI, which provocatively challenge ethical norms. The exhibition puts you in an immersive, communal experience designed to push your own ethical boundaries and reclaim your future.

Expect an evening panel discussion of challenging, exciting and progressive conversation which focuses on the thought leadership and work of our exciting speakers! Each speaker has been chosen for their insight, experience and leadership in their fields, and will provide a thought provoking discussion which aims to inspire new ethical futures.
