I didn't realise there was such a thing until I just stumbled across it. According to the DSE website, http://www.dse.vic.gov.au/CA256D4800170952/BCVIEW/354D75DB7CB81F26CA256D480003CEF2?OPENDOCUMENT
It is meant to:
* raise the profile of design
* provide strategic advice to Government on key issues in urban design
* promote Victoria's design capabilities nationally and internationally
* champion high standards and design innovation in professional education and training, and
* sustain community interest in design issues
How can it sustain community interest if there is no trace of this group on the web? Does anyone know what they do?
