MELBOURNE MOB - Radical Intimacies in Action

So... finally some snapshots from the amazing energy we are all experiencing here in Melbourne right now.

Three days of symposium with great speakers: critical thinkers, activists, academics, artists, designers, lovers and friends (and guitar players) from around the world who helped to open our horizons on the theme Radical Intimacies: Dialogue in out Times - especially the ones delivered from the aboriginal communities from Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

We are now already at the third day of the workshop - working on projects which will help strengten the aboriginal fight against constant colonization.

This is just a snapshot, more to come...!
Keep the fire burning!

Was so great to be there with you all! A new international network is born and will lead to more of the same, I am sure. Let's keep in touch.

Description

I am a graphic designer from the coast of Slovenia, hungry to amplify MEMES with strong/ethical content.
Right now I am doing a master in Visual communication studies in the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana researching the theme of Ecology in Graphic Design. Otherwise I work as a graphic designer for Studio Poper, a communication studio with strong social engagement, based in Ljubljana.

Some of my design work here:

I have joined the Memfest community becasue i am interested in

When I realized, as a young visual communicator, that we live in a neoliberal absurdness surrounded by ethical crisis, I wanted to involve all my creative energies to projects connected with deep ethical connotation.

In 2003 or 2004 I found out the project called Memefest, which was kind of revelation for me. The content on the website impressed me so much, because there I found a quite big international community of people thinking and creating in the way I wanted to do it.
After all Memefest project was developed in Slovenia, I really loved the concept and I said to myself that it was insane not to try to get involved. At that point I realized that I need to get in contact with the organization. I really wanted to know the team and I was open for absorbing new knowledge.
At the time my anger on visual pollution that commercial visual communication was producing was enormous, and I thought that collaboration with people involved in Memefest community can just help me to make my point of view clearer.

That feeling of anger, now mixed with other feelings, is still here, that`s why I am still a part of Memefest.
