Design Salons

In 2009, the Design Industry Advisory Committee partnered with the Martin Prosperity Institute and Salon Camden to develop and host a series of Design Salons. At each of the salons, thought leaders from industry, government, education and design were invited to engage in a stimulating debate with an expert guest speaker and to enjoy a gourmet dinner and networking hour.

May 13, 2009, Christopher Hume, columnist for the Toronto Star, spoke on “What’s wrong with Canadian cities?”
June 23, 2009, Dr. Tara Vinodrai, Assistant Professor, University of Waterloo, spoke on “Design in a downturn? Understanding the place of design in Ontario.”
July 21, 2009, Brian Burns, Professor, School of Industrial Design, Carleton University spoke on “Industrial Designers: despoilers or saviours?”
