"The Memefest workshop was a fantastic conclusion to my Bachelor of Design at QCA. I learnt an incredible amount throughout the 8 day workshop in a way which I hadn't encountered throughout my entire degree. The collaboration between students, academics and The Aboriginal Sovereign Embassy played a great role in creating meaningful context for my work as a designer. The outcomes couldn't have been achieved within a normal classroom setting and I feel very lucky to have been a part of this wonderful learning experience." Thomas Roohan VCD graduate 2013

What the recent history of Greece exposes is that while the powerful and the privileged will continually strive to retain their power and privileges, they are fundamentally failing to deal with the issues that are deciding the fate of humanity (and much else): planetary destruction, a climate heading toward, perhaps already in, chaos and an ever growing volume of displaced people worldwide; increasing the spread and growth of asymmetrical warfare as a feature of late-modern life.

The award for Imaginative Critical Intervention is given to support critical thinking, as the ability to see situations as they are and imagine them differently in a way that can emancipate and lead to transformation through intervention. Such interventions can be many things. They create a rupture in the order of things with the goal to redefine our relationships between being, doing and saying and our fields of experience.
The Award promotes excellence in design/communication for social and environmental change.
EXTENDED DEADLINE MAY 31ST 2013!
