PRO-AM is a sports term referring to someone who plays at a high-level but is not paid—Professionally Amateur, Dale Hardiman, will present a keynote lecture discussing how not being an expert in a field can lead to inventive outcomes, and how leading projects without requiring payment can result in highly collaborative and cross-disciplinary works.

Dale Hardiman is a Melbourne based designer and the co-founder of furniture and object brand Dowel Jones (recently relocated to Geelong) and collaborative project Friends and Associates.

This event is part of Melbourne Design Week 2019 an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV
