Last week I attended the regular Powerhouse Museum Event, dfactory, an event that has been growing in popularity and supported by a loyal audience of students and industry professionals.

Apart from a range of design exhibition openings around Sydney which you may or may not get invitations to, there are few events in Sydney about design that are free. It’s no surprise dfactory is on everyone’s radar. Students flock to the event from a diversity of disciplines such as Event Management, Film and Theatre studies, Fashion and Costume design, Jewellery design to name a few. Some just come for the ambiance, fine DJ sessions and to socialise with their friends and network with designers. Last weeks line up were lighting designer Gavan Swift, Brian Thomson, and costume supervisor, Sue Osmond who spoke about their experiences in the industry and discussed issues of design, lighting, staging and costume for large scale events such as the opening and closing ceremonies of the Sydney Olympic Games and Kylie Minogue concerts.

dfactory is always a good event – there has not been I time I have not had a good time and met interesting people so bring your friends, get networking and get informed at the Powerhouse Museum once a month.

    I went to dfactory when I was last in Sydney and had a great time. It’s a brilliant idea. Do you know if there’s anything like dfactory in Melbourne? I’m moving to Melbourne from Perth in a couple of months…

    I don’t know that there is anything similar in Melbourne. Melbourne Museum would be the one to do it if it were to happen, give them a try, http://melbourne.museum.vic.gov.au, as they are the main hosts of design events in Victoria other than Craft Victoria. Good luck with the move but we’re sure to see lots more from you on your site. By the way, I love it!
