Sustainability by Design

A conversation about sustainability and the role of the designer 

We are delighted to be back with an in-person event for Heritage Week 2022. The theme this year is Sustainability and we have reached out to some of the leading designers that have incorporated sustainability into their daily practice. Sustainable design is the approach to creating products and services that have considered the environmental, social, and economic impacts from the initial phase through to the end of life.

We have an incredible event lined up to celebrate the creation of a more resilient world and learn how we can conserve our heritage for a more sustainable future. Our panel will explain why sustainable design is important and share examples of how we can implement sustainable design on different levels.

On August 18, we will be hosting an in person event at The Tara Building. This will be a panel discussion that explores diverse aspects of sustainability in design – from digital, branding, to exhibition design and food. We have invited panellists to consider different aspects of sustainability that have shaped their own practice and to share their experiences with our audience. Through this, we can reflect on not only incorporating sustainability into our daily practice but how we can preserve our culture and heritage well into the future. 

This is a free event, but places are limited, so booking is essential. 

In 2022, the 100 Archive is proud to be funded by the Heritage Council.
