MEDIA RELEASE: Australian first in design for change

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
16th of May, 2009

In a first for the Australian design and creative community, today marks the launch of a website showcasing the work of designers who are focussed on creating positive social and environmental change.

www.bindarri.com.au, the new website of the non-profit organisation, Bindarri, will keep audiences informed of all the latest news and events relating to artists and designers working for positive change in Australia.

The Bindarri website includes the largest online directory of Australian designers, as well as essential resources to assist others seeking to create positive outcomes.

The website showcases individuals and organisations which are leading in their creative fields in a number of special features which will be released bi-monthly. The first edition includes couture designer Rachael Cassar, photographer Rodney Dekker and artist Van Thanh Rudd, amongst others.

The Bindarri team expect the project to grow rapidly once launched as it allows anyone the opportunity to add their own news and websites on the site.

“We have an open interpretation on the meaning of design and are open to all submissions from creatives working towards positive change in Australia”, explained site founder, Glenn Todd. This positive change Bindarri is seeking to promote includes both social and environmental, and may range from people working and encouraging personal and local community projects to global politics.

All work produced for the Bindarri website is licensed under creative commons, allowing anyone to download images and templates and use them on their own projects.

By making the resources freely available, Bindarri is promoting sharing and collaboration within the creative industries, a concept they believe will accelerate the development of creative solutions to the worlds’ issues, including climate change and wealth inequity.
