Work Reimagined Sydney Edition

Event description

We are back in Sydney with a new event! 

Join us for Work Reimagined:

Learning from our F*** Ups," an intimate gathering where the design community embraces the reality behind the glamorous facades. This event is dedicated to architects, designers, and practice owners eager to share not only their triumphs, but their "What was I thinking?" moments, the unforeseen hurdles, and the invaluable insights gained from plans that veered off course.

Picture an evening where we ditch the glossy editorials and delve into the true stories of building careers in design and creating the spaces that define our environment. Work Redesigned offers a rare peek behind the architectural curtain, celebrating the intricate, often bumpy journey of innovation and the learning that comes from every misstep.

Inspired by the F**K Up nights movement, it's about building a community that finds strength in vulnerability and imperfection and sees every challenge as an opportunity for growth.
