Brought to you by the IDI and Aware, Mind Over Matter is an event that aims to put a spotlight on mental health in the design community.

  • 1 in 10 people are affected by depression in Ireland.
  • 25% of creatives will suffer from a mental health issue in their lifetime.

Mind Over Matter is a day of reaching out, creating opportunity, sharing skills and experience while raising money for a great cause.

How it works

With locations across Ireland Mind Over Matter will take place on 10th October 2018. For a fee of €75 anyone from an established business to a start-up or an entrepreneur can book a consultation hour with a designer. The fee goes straight to Aware while during the hour you will exchange knowledge and ideas and hopefully open up new opportunities while raising money for a great cause in your region.

Why Participate?

Designers network on site in their region and open up potential collaboration opportunities and/or support networks. Local enterprises are introduced to the design talent in their locality, creating the potential to form a wider client base. Our members engage with the IDI in a new and meaningful way. Aware raise more funds for Mental Health supports regionally.
