The Design Lab, a monthly design focused meeting place for ideas.

An opportunity to learn about different questions and problems people are encountering in their current practice. Fast track the development of ideas with other designers. Meet other designers.


The sessions are casual and inspirational with a variety of topics and projects. 


Lisa Maule brought this idea to Nick Zwart and Meg Rollandi late in 2018. It grew from Lisa's teaching practice and the 2018 BATS Theatre Summit.


BATS Theatre as a partner provides an ideal home base and the Wellington City Council supported with a Creative Communities Grant.


Membership if:

  • you have a design practice in performing arts / events, or,

  • you are keen to become a designer - students are welcome.

  • $10 annual subscription

The Design Lab is in a six month start up phase.
In partnership with BATS Theatre, produced by Luminaire NZ Ltd, and supported by the Wellington City Council's Creative Communities grant.

Comments and questions welcome
