During 2023 we invited interior designers to explore different aspects of themselves through activity, to join us on a work life balance journey, and have some fun.

We hosted 6 events across Australia encouraging our industry to explore their minds and seek respite from busy demanding schedules. We wanted to understand how our minds work, how we can improve mental health, and how we can achieve the best state of mind to positively approach our days.

The events were a great success and we enjoyed some fantastic travel and action-packed activities. We explored the importance of taking time out, nurturing relationships, challenging the brain with new things, stepping out of our comfort zones, and supporting a positive state of mind. At the events we discussed mental health in the context of workplaces, and in particular caring for the mental health of ourselves, our colleagues, and our employees, and how we can continue to work together to create workplaces that enhance employee satisfaction.

The success of the 2023 AWAKEN YOUR MIND program resulted in a better understanding of how Square Bear can create products for your workplace needs relating to wellbeing and we are excited to launch our second AWAKEN YOUR MIND program in 2024. For this program we are focussing on awakening our minds to art, design, and architecture around the world. We will explore sustainable materials, various styles of architecture, and some interesting forms of creativity in order to increase our awareness of trends and possibilities for the future development of workplace design and how Square Bear can create solutions to enhance work environments.

We invite you to apply for our events as we launch them and for your opportunity to participate in our global adventures to awaken our minds to various forms of art, design, and architecture. Events will be launched separately, and we encourage you to monitor this experiences page to avoid missing out on the application process.
