    Presenters: 

    • Florian van den Corput 

    Cost:

    • Free for DATTA Vic Members ONLY

    Join Sustainability Victoria's Florian van den Corput, as he gives an in-depth explanation about the concept of a Circular Economy, one of the six sustainability frameworks/strategies in the Product Design and Technologies study design. 

    Florian is the Senior Advisor on Circular Economy at Sustainability Victoria, an Industrial Design Engineer by education and a specialist in developing circular solutions from concept to implementation.

    With experience in consultancies, industry and multiple levels of government, Florian’s expertise lies in using design thinking to build bridges between strategy and execution.

    He currently works for the Victorian Government to help identify gaps and opportunities, advise on policy and program design, and develop solutions to accelerate our transition to a circular economy.

    This session is relevant to all Design and Technologies teachers and will help you get your head around what a circular economy is and how it is applied to product design.

      We're really delighted to welcome acclaimed designer Dr Trent Jansen to deliver this online workshop which focuses on the professional practice of a designer who strives to incorporate indigenous culture, knowledge and perspectives appropriately in his work.

      All participants will receive a recording of the session which would be a great resource for VCE PD&T students, and for Design & Technologies classes in general.

      Trent Jansen is a designer based in Thirroul, Australia, and Lecturer at the University of New South Wales Art & Design, Sydney Australia. After a period working under Marcel Wanders in Amsterdam, Trent returned to Australia to set up the Trent Jansen Studio in Sydney, before moving his practice to Thirroul on the New South Wales South Coast. 

      Jansen applies his method of Design Anthropology to the design of limited edition and one-off pieces for clients including the Molonglo GroupCharter Hall and Mirvac. This approach is also applied to the design of products and furniture for manufacturers MoooiDesignByThem and Tait.  

      “Trent has a great deal of respect for cultural heritage and is extraordinarily thorough in incorporating cultural identity and history into his works"
