APDL Lecture Series- Side Project with Christina Waterson


The 2012 APDL Lecture Series 'Side Project' uncovers and explores the inspiration that exists outside the world of design.
 
On the 14 November 2012, Shane Thompson (2012 Queensland Smart Design Fellow) asked Christina Waterson (How We Create) about the projects she undertakes outside his primary work practice, how these extra-curricular activities transfer across disciplines, and how they enrich all sides of life – both work and play.
 
Celebrated Australian Artist, Designer and Writer - Christina Waterson – is the Creative Director of Howwecreate.com a unique organisation that initiates new conversations and sparks innovation across all creative sectors. Her creative direction of Howwecreate.com events and installations including the Make it Precinct at Saturday Indesign Melbourne and We Were Here at Saturday Indesign Singapore in 2012, have been welcomed by the local, national and international community as an important shift within our industry.
 
Christina has maintained a vibrant creative practice across a variety of scales and mediums for over a decade. Trained as an architect, she is a celebrated artist and designer across exhibition, event and product design. She infuses her writing, lecturing and public engagement with personal and direct experience across these creative pursuits. Her whole practice is imbued with a passion to make meaningful places, objects and relationships to be treasured by all of the community.
 
Christina’s unique approach has been recognized through short listings in the 2008 Bombay Sapphire Design Discovery Award, DQ magazine’s Top Ten Forces and Faces in Australian and New Zealand Design, 2009, and the 2012 Queensland Smart State Design Fellowship. In 2010 Christina received a highly coveted Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowship.
