Talking through is a publication that explores ways of working and relating in the face of precarity and uncertainty. The project weaves together conversations with a group of socially-engaged designers working across fields including service design, book design, type design, systems practice, facilitation, futuring, community organising and education. Talking through gives visibility to strategies for alternative practices and raises urgent questions about how design practitioners might shift their thinking towards care, maintenance and mutual support.

The book will be launched during the Melbourne Art Book Fair alongside a panel discussion featuring contributors Kate McEntee, Lina Patel and Vincent Chan.
