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.

Join us for our Annual appeal 2022

In a time where it feels like we have so much stacked against us, we should not underestimate the value of imagination, design thinking and the importance of supporting the creative community has never been greater.  

As we enter a new fiscal year Craft ACT is reaching out to its committed member and supporter base to raise an additional $20,000 to directly support its member artists, programs and exhibitions and connected them to our audiences, thereby contributing to positive outcomes in the wider community.
