Every design project requires a level of sensitivity and responsiveness to all the cultures involved. When the project scales up to an international level, the degree of cultural complexity goes up with it. Join Renée Ballard, Dan Neville and Katherine Kemp, as they share their experience working on international retail, hospitality and commercial interior design projects throughout Hong Kong, China and greater Asia. Hear what happened when they misread the culture and got it wrong, and how they worked with everyone at the design table to get the project back on-track.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
