2021 Match Tournament logoMatch Tournament is an interdisciplinary collaboration of academic and student minds tackling a client posed meta challenge to develop proposals for products, policies, systems, and services that address the client’s challenge.

The meta challenge ‘Activating Community Resilience’ has been posed by the Fay Fuller Foundation and Wellbeing SA’s Mental Health & Wellbeing Directorate, who are seeking creative responses to this challenge.

During the monodisciplinary heats, the students will add their disciplinary lens to addressing the challenge. The interdisciplinary design sprint offers selected students from the monodisciplinary challenge the opportunity to learn and apply Match Studio’s Design Thinking methods to develop and pitch feasible proposals that could equip, resource, or connect communities to activate resilience in responding to collective trauma. The design sprint will conclude with a pitch event, the winning team will be awarded $5,000 towards project mentoring and professional development with UniSA’s Innovation & Collaboration Centre (ICC).

Selected projects from both stages of the Tournament will be exhibited in the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery during Mental Health Week, beginning 10 October.

The top teams from each course will be invited to participate in an interdisciplinary design sprint.
