We don’t just do design. We start conversations with like-minded and diverse groups of people, whether they have a shared interest in design, technology or inspiring social good. Portable has hosted a number of events over the past decade: film festivals, panel talks, various launches and conferences.

Join us at one of our upcoming events.

Portable Talks: Empathy in design and what to do with it (Melbourne)

Empathy. Everyone's talking about it. But who's actually doing it? And what do you do with it once you've felt it?Join our Human-Centred Design specialist Joe as he takes us on a journey to discover the what, how and why of empathy, and how it's transformed his design practice. Hear all about how feeling stuff can help you win arguments, how to innovate by implementing the radical practice of listening to other people, and how an empathetic approach will not only help you understand your customers, but give you and your team the natural drive to solve some of the trickiest problems they face. With plenty of storytelling, animated GIFs and pop culture references along the way, you'll laugh, you'll cry, but that's kinda the point, ya feel me?

Portable Talks: How Feminists do Agile (Canberra)

Following sold out crowds in Sydney and Melbourne, Portable is bringing How Feminists do Agile to Canberra! Presented by our Chief Operating Officer and Girl Boss Sarah Kaur, the talk will focus on how Portable's all female Production team turns the male dominated Agile Methodology upside down with a feminist imperative.You’ll learn about the gendered history of Agile as a project management style and tease out the patriarchal leaning of the Client-Agency relationship.
