If I can find time I'd like to contribute but what do you mean by "activists"?
Not the radical, political type? ;)
When I originally thought about doing a similar thing it was for good causes.
Stuff to help people or a cause that otherwise wouldn't have the resources or the funding and try and make a difference and do a bit of good.
My original idea was to have a pool of people with different skill sets who could collaborate to suit a project and maybe to even include and mentor less experienced designers (or whatever) to give them practical experience.
Fact is I'm totally shit at organising things so it never happened.
@dvize - i'd definitely be keen to get involved for sure.
some creative organisations there's also the design kids, you've got australian design radio, you've got things like the design conference, agda is still around, design institute of australia, semi-permanent still runs
I am looking for designers to run a session over the first event and participate in the second. If you have any other ideas on how you would like to contribute, let me know as we are working in a freestyling creative environment.
I would also appreciate any leads to people/orgs/companies who may be interested and any promo
