Mind Over Matter
The Mind Over Matter initiative by the Institute of Designers Ireland aims to highlight the importance of looking after your mental health in the creative community.
Businesses, entrepreneurs and startups have the opportunity to book a one hour consultation with architects, brand strategists, garden designers and interior designers, product, graphic and digital designers. All proceeds raised from the consultations will be donated to Aware, helping to fund the charity’s free nationwide support, education and information services.
The Limerick event will be taking place on 2 November in Ormston House and include Alphaset, Blink Design, Des Kingston, Healy Partners, Philip Kenny, Piquant and Theresa Stanford. It is a day of reaching out, creating opportunity, sharing skills and experience while raising money for a great cause. Spaces are limited and bookings must be made in advance only here.
Consultation fee: €60
