Supporting local Australian artists, makers and designers
Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre is a not-for-profit membership based organisation which supports artists, craft practitioners, designers and makers at every stage of their careers. We promote and celebrate excellence and innovation in contemporary craft in everything we do – in our retail space, exhibitions, events and membership program.
Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of the ACT and surrounding areas. We honour and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We aim to respect cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of all Indigenous people.
DESIGN Canberra presents
After an extensive risk planning process, Craft ACT has announced the decision to cancel the 2021 DESIGN Canberra festival that was set to be presented this November. Design Canberra will instead present a ‘Nurture’ program to support artists impacted by Covid-driven cancellation and use creativity to support the Canberra community.
The full ‘Design Canberra presents Nurture’ program will be announced on Tuesday 19 October 2021. To register interest in the Nurture program and be the first to hear about its programming and get access to tickets, please sign up via the from below.
