To celebrate the launch of unschool labs, join us for an evening of drinking and designing for positive change!

People in different cities around the world - including Dunedin - will be gathering for a high-energy, brain-flexing Drink & Design Night! Wondering what it is? Think Pub Trivia meets Design Game Show, and pour all that energy and creative juice into making positive change.

The theme for this one will be Politics, so... Want to be part of the first ever UnSchool Labs event in Dunedin, up your politics knowledge set, put your creative ideation skills to the test, and laugh out loud? Sign up and show up!

What’s the deal with Drink & Design Night?
We know there are way better ways of designing kick-ass campaigns, interventions and communication strategies that make doing good a good idea! Come as a team of challenge ready designers, thinkers, doers or come alone and we will assign you an awesome posse of fellow creative thinkers to get busy with! Once everyone has teamed up, you’ll battle it out with other teams for supreme dominance of creative change-making ideas.

The bar is open for service and everyone is welcome!

What’s the deal with UnSchool Labs? The UnSchool is an experimental knowledge lab for purpose-driven creative rebels and change agents - in addition to online classes, the HQ team runs weeklong fellowships, Disruptive Design workshops and community events that pop-up in different cities.

UnSchool Labs is a collaboration between The UnSchool and its incredible global alumni community. Through UnSchool Labs, alumni around the world activate their communities and run UnSchool programs (like Drink & Design Night, Verbal Fight Club, Secret Dinner Parties, Disruptive Design Workshops and more)! Labs events are independently produced by local alumni, using UnSchool event packs and formats.

So, what exactly will be happening?
You and a team of people will be challenged to a night of design thinking for positive change, egged on by expert judges and, well a bunch of other designery types fueled by choice beer, wine and non-alcoholic refreshments.

Arrive between 5:30pm and 6pm for a 6pm start (if you are late you will miss the challenge rules!).

Drink, design, take on Climate Change and show the world (or at least the other participants) your crazy creative thinking skills.

FAQs:
Will there be booze? Yes! Beer and wine can be purchased on the spot! Non-drinkers are more than welcomed too, with non-alcoholic options available.

We have a dream team together can we register? Yes! Come as a team just like the pub trivia teams that hit up every bar in town - you can even register together.

What if I don't have a team? No sweat - you can totally show up stag. We will put you in an awesome team once you arrive.

What if I'm not a designer? That's cool! Design is all about a diversity of skills coming together to create something new, whatever skills you’ve got will be useful.

Who’s running this thing? Craig, Melbourne alumni and Chch co-host, and Fi, Melbourne alumni.
On a scale of 1 - 10, how much fun is this going to be? We say 11, but we are clearly biased.
