About the Event

Stephen has been working with Local Artist Hannah French to inspire the young minds of the future in climate change mitigation and adaption strategies and ideas.  Hannah will facillitate this evening discussion.  

Stephen has over 20 years experience as an industrial designer, design workshop facilitator and science communicator. He has collaborated with scientists, engineers, farmers and steel fabricators on urban agriculture, composting and biogas technologies, zero emission master-plans, science communication and science-based adventure playgrounds.

Stephen’s satirical future inventions were exhibited by The Australian Design Centre as part of CUSP (2013), a touring exhibition of futures design thinking. In August 2014, his exhibition Now If What Then: Farming Tokyo was exhibited as a solo show at Spiral contemporary art gallery in Japan, in collaboration with The Tokyo University of Agriculture. This exhibition presented 10 of Stephen's projects which re-imagined the world’s largest city as self sufficient in food production. His designs have also been exhibited in Sydney at the Grace Cossington Smith Gallery (2015), at The Glasshouse in Port Macquarie (2016), and at MRPG gallery and Docklands Library Gallery in Melbourne (2017).

In 2012 Stephen won the British Council's Big Green Idea Award for an open-source aquaponics system, he managed technology projects at CERES Environment Park for seven years from 2003-2010, and in 2015 was awarded an Australian Design Honours  for work in sustainability design education.
