Chris Vanstone

Chief Innovation Officer

Chris leads innovation across projects and start-ups for The Australian Centre for Social Innovation (TACSI).

He started his career as a product designer, designing biscuits, cameras and razors, but has spent the last 14 years working with interdisciplinary teams and communities to co-design solutions to social problems.

Before joining TACSI he designed solutions to increase democratic participation, reduce household carbon emissions, build relationships for socially isolated older people and enable more young people to thrive.

His work has been exhibited at MoMA and Cooper-Hewitt in New York and at the Design Museum and V&A in London.
