The second Design and Ethics event aims to make space for dialogue about emergent and pluralist ways of thinking about and practicing design within Melbourne’s service design communities. Specifically, we would like to explore how spaces are able to be created by early-career practitioners who are supporting and challenging each other and more established practitioners.

The need for these spaces is closely connected to creating conversation, providing mentorship, and envisioning the direction of our broader community. We hope to explore idea of precariousness in the context of ‘green-ness’ and the specific challenges that early career design practitioners may face as they chart their professional journeys in increasingly uncertain times. It has been noted that some of us would like to talk about support, but we don’t necessarily know how to yet. Some of us would like to ask more of the senior voices in the community, but are still exploring the constructs of professional relationships. We would further like to explore methods that these spaces may be constructed.

We hope that these conversations might play a role in developing an ethical, reflective and inclusive community of practice.

The organisers of this conversation would like to share back the learnings with the community in a way that feels appropriate to those involved.


We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of lands on which the Design and Ethics events have been organised and are taking place. Sovereignty over this land has never been ceded. We pay our respects to elders past, present and future.
