Off Grid 18: The Experiential City
Australia & New Zealand

Sydney/Brisbane/Melbourne | 23 February 2018
Wellington, New Zealand | 26–27 February 2018

Off Grid 18 is a different kind of design conference that will engage you in a conversation about designing for the "experiential city" using exciting locations throughout the city.

Off Grid speakers will engage you in a conversation about the practice of experiential graphic design using exciting locations around the city. Just four keynote speakers are invited and the rest evolve around them. At Off Grid 17, participants experienced 30 speakers in 15 unique venues. This year, keynotes have been invited from Gehl (Denmark), North (UK), Department of the 4th Dimension (USA) and Public (Canada).

Off Grid 18 takes place in February 2018 in Wellington with "stopovers" in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane that will help you break up your travel. The cities become the auditorium so you won’t feel trapped in a lecture theatre or boring conference hotel.

This year. we have added Melbourne, where Büro North will help you get lost in the maze of Melbourne’s cityscape. They are developing a new and unique experience to help you discover hidden icons, architectural marvels, design delights and unearth the underground history of Melbourne. Then weigh into the conversation and piece together your collected findings with other fellow explorers and unlock the puzzle that awaits you at the final destination. Uncover an unexpected side of Melbourne! (More details on the Sydney and Brisbane stopovers coming soon.)

Off Grid 18 is a must for all people who connect people to place, be that through architecture, urban design, planning, signage, experience design, art or activism, and everything in between!
