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. This is what we’re doing today.


The New Infrastructure

The infrastructure around which we build our lives is essential to maintaining our quality of life. Yet in major cities around the world, infrastructure is ageing and is rapidly becoming outdated. We’re starting the conversation and we’re ready to make the change.

Innovating In Government

Making change within government is not easy. Our latest report explored the drivers of government innovation within Australia. We’re sharing our insights by launching it across Australian cities. 

Redesigning Work

Technology, globalisation and automation are all changing our relationship to work. Over the next decade, the way in which we interact with work could be dramatically different to today.

In 2016, as part of our continuing exploration of how technology is reshaping our world, Portable hosted a series of forums to find out more about the future of work.

Data Driven Design

Over the past year, we’ve been working to articulate a new Design Thinking practice that places data in the centre of the design experience. We’re finally unveiling this approach and travelling around Australia to present our Data Driven Design insights, lessons and processes.
