Off Grid 17 explores the intersection of communication design and the built environment. Embracing a wide range of design fields, interrogating projects that create a sense of place, that help people find their way, communicate important information, and fuel dialogue between all users, the relationship between people and the spaces they all inhabit.
Off Grid 17 will be a different type of conference that starts at local events in Auckland, Christchurch, Brisbane, and Sydney before participants undertake individual journeys to Wellington, the hub for Off Grid 17.
Off Grid 17 is an 'out of the lecture theatre' experience that offers content you want in appropriate locations delivered in engaging ways. Every evening an Off Grid 17 Party brings everyone together in an unexpected location to meet, discuss and learn from each other.
Off Grid 17 lives through participation, your individual journeys and experiences inform topics that will be discussed when you convene in Wellington. Through an unconference format, opportunities are created for peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and creativity. There is no agenda until you create it!
Off Grid 17 will bring influencers engaged in experiential design to stimulate and provoke discussion and respond to the emerging agenda.
