Dulux DIAlogue on Tour, is a Study Scholarship, brought to you by Dulux, The Designers Institute of New Zealand (DINZ) and the Design Institute of Australia (DIA).
The Dulux DIAlogue on Tour is now into its third year.
The Tour offers the opportunity for design professionals - from The Designers Institute of New Zealand and The Design Institute of Australia - to travel into new studios and new cultures.
The New Zealand winner of the Dulux DIAlogue on Tour 2016 was Keri Cunliffe, and she travelled to London and Stockholm along with four Design Institute of Australia Tour winners.
Keri says -“I was drawn to the Dulux DIAlogue on Tour for the potential to expand my insight into international design thinking from talented overseas design practitioners. I believe it’s important to study how others, whether local or international, approach design thinking, it keeps us open and grounded."
Rufus Knight was the New Zealand winner of the Dulux DIAlogue on Tour 2017.
The Tour returned to London and Stockhom and included attending the 2017 London Design Festival.
Rufus says - "The Dulux DIAlogue on Tour had many highlights – aside from the exceptional studios and spaces we visited – it was a privilege to understand more fully the similarities between international design cultures and communities."
The Dulux DIAlogue on Tour 2018 will take a New Zealand DINZ Professional or Fellow Member along with four Design Institute of Australia Members to Tokyo and Los Angeles.
The Tour has been developed to provide an opportunity for spatial design professionals, to revitalise, reinvigorate and re-inspire their career.
