APDL Lecture Series: Side Project with Andrew Ballantyne


The APDL lecture series uncovers and explores the Side Project and the inspiration that exists outside the world of design.

Shane Thompson (2012 Queensland Smart Design Fellow) asks leading design thinkers about the projects they undertake outside their primary work practice, how these extra-curricular activities transfer across disciplines, and how they enrich all sides of life – both work and play.

After the event, take the opportunity to discuss your own project during option post event drinks in the APDL lounge, tickets $15 (incl refreshments).
