'Interior Tools Interior Tactics' aims to bring together an international interior community of advocates, academics, researchers, practitioners, design organisations and design policy makers who wish to shape the future tools and develop progressive tactics for interiors practice, education and research. Keynote addresses from leaders in the field of interior practice, research and education will stimulate debate.
'Interior Tools Interior Tactics' will offer delegates opportunities to network, establish collaborative relationships, participate in exploratory theatres of thinking, workshops and interactive presentation sessions, and to reflect, explore, debate and share the innovative tools and diverse tactics deployed across interiors academe, practice and research. It will provide a forum for educators, industrial practitioners, researchers and graduate students to discuss current issues affecting the nature and direction of interior design practice, education, policy and research.
