Mitra Gusheh’s practice builds on over 15 years of experience across the social sector and the design profession. Having studied psychology and design (visual communication), Mitra brings together principles underpinning both fields to respond to complex social challenges. She has worked for a range local and international not for profit organisations, where she has been responsible for the strategic design and development of large-scale social change programs and their implementation. This includes the establishment of Oxfam Australia’s national youth program, the design and implementation of an advocacy program on child rights in Sri Lanka, and the design and implementation of an ICT project in partnership with UNESCO based in Nepal. Mitra also has extensive facilitation skills, having taught at the School of Design, University of Technology, Sydney (UTS).

Mitra is currently undertaking her PhD at UTS. Her study explores the complex nature of design practitioners’ inevitable social impact and works towards revealing ways in which the design community can navigate beyond the perceived boundaries of their professional identity in order to better their understanding of, and deepen their engagement in, positive social change.
