Direct from Beijing Design Week: Asialink Arts Director Dr Pippa Dickson

In this video Dr Pippa Dickson reflects on her experiences of Beijing Design Week, an annual event that aims to raise public design awareness as well as to help develop stronger design infrastructure and discourse in Beijing.

In her first year as Asialink Arts Director she also provides an introduction to the activities of one of the longest-running organisations focused on Asian-Australian creative engagement.

“At the moment we’re really taking stock in the arts to see where we can renew and reinvigorate relationships that we’ve had for almost thirty years and where the new opportunities are and where the energy is.”

Beijing Design Week is composed of an opening and award ceremony, forum, guest city activities, design fair, design hop, and design copyright service.

This video was produced by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
