A favourite on Australia’s creative calendar, The Design Conference (TDC) is set to explode in 2022. Featuring twice as much action than ever before, attendees are in for an amazing three days of creative exchange held at the Brisbane Powerhouse from June 9th-11th 2022. Less than 100+ first release passes remain with digital streaming tickets also available.
Says Matthew Haynes, founder, TDC: “I’ve never been more excited to deliver TDC. It feels like everything is falling into place right on cue. We’ve got a bright future, TDC 2022 will be everything I ever imagined and more– it’s a lifetime achievement for me and that is something that brings huge joy and meaning to my life.
“I want to acknowledge the creative community for the support they have thrown behind us during these trying times. Your strength and support mean the world to us and we look forward to blowing your mind this June.”
This year’s event features an entirely new format with more talks, discussions, evening events, not to mention a brand new workshop series with its most comprehensive line-up ever with the complete line-up to be announced on April 18th.
Says Haynes: “While TDC is an experience that focuses on the philosophy of design, the 2022 conference adds a whole new layer of objective learning opportunities.”
TDC’s 12 year history has led to the formation of an honest and authentic community culture surrounding the event from both speakers and attendees alike. This has proved to be a great success with the event receiving five star reviews describing the atmosphere as ‘mind-blowing, warm, and inclusive.’
