Melbourne (Australia) - Indigo, the international indigenous design network, invites tertiary design students from around the world to take part in a major cultural exchange project entitled MIX08.

MIX08 invites students to collaborate with their local communities and peers, either within or outside their schools, and respond to the MIX08 brief in the form of a poster.

This year’'s MIX08 brief is based on the following statement: Sustainability is old news.

The context for this brief is drawn from the 2008 Kyoto Design Declaration. Click here to read the declaration.

A panel of judges will select up to 50 entries to be showcased in the MIX08 exhibition. The exhibition will be displayed on the Indigo website and will be available to schools and other institutions wishing to stage a physical exhibition.

MIX08 encourages collaboration and discourse between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students worldwide, as well as the participation of Indigenous people as advisors or mentors.
