Melbourne Professional Design Anthropology
The Melbourne Professional Design Anthropology Meetup brings together professional Design Anthropologists for networking, discussions, presentations and workshops. Design Anthropology is about how design translates (human) values into tangible experiences. DAnthros have to understand values, strategize design, and transform experiences. We learn from each other and visiting experts on how to transform our work places through the principles and practices of Design Anthropology.
EPIC is a conference and an international community of practitioners who work to ensure that innovation, strategies, processes and products are anchored in what matters to people in their everyday lives. We draw on tools and resources from the social sciences and humanities as well as Design Thinking, Agile, Lean Start-up and other approaches to realize value for organizations and communities from understanding people and their practices.
