For Desired, The Podcast‘s first episode – Officially Creative: Design Thinking, Education & The Government, Juliana hosted Susie Robinson, currently Executive Director of Australian Plant Phenomics Facilities, formerly Policy Advisor for the UK Government, Department of Trade and Industry. Robinson has also served as Economic Advisor to the Treasure for the Government of South Australia.

In this episode, Juliana and Susie explore the role of the government and formal education when fomenting creativity, design and innovation, arguing that creativity has become a commodity in recent years, especially because of its human uniqueness that can’t yet be substituted by technology.

“It’s almost like the enhancement of technology is truly telling us what it means to be human”, says Juliana.
