Lauren Anseline

Social Innovator

Bachelor of Fashion and Textile Design (Hons); Master of Design Anthropology

Lauren’s background in design anthropology, experience and spatial design, visual design, photography, and fashion design means she’s perfectly placed to understand what it means to be human.

As a social innovator, Lauren combines her reflective anthropological thinking with an action-driven design mindset to help navigate complex problems and ambiguous projects. Her favourite part of working at TACSI is the team, who she describes as a diverse bunch stuck together with kindness, empathy and laughter.

A recent highlight is her work on a long-term project focused on changing the Australian end-of-life system. Together with her colleague Euan, she’s working on bringing together change makers to shift the conditions that create barriers for people to have a good death.

Outside the office, Lauren is passionate about gardening, dancing and patting other people’s dogs.
