BUT I do have another giveaway! ACCA have kindly offered 2 tickets to Design for the Times – Liane Rossler’s talk at ACCA next Monday night! Liane will talk about what artists, designers and creative visionaries can do to be part of a design solution to the crisis of climate change.

Liane Rossler is one of the founders and designers of the wonderful Dinosaur Designs, and is also one of Al Gore’s Climate Change ambassadors. It’ll be an amazing talk, from one of Australia’s most inspiring and well-respected designers. You may remember my interview with Liane last year – I was very star-struck!

To be in the running for tickets please comment on this post before 5.00pm today! Thanks so much and good luck! :)
