Design Canberra Festival

Exhibition and Shows

2 Nov 2022 to 20 Nov 2022 Once Only Event

DESIGN Canberra celebrates and promotes Canberra as a global city of design.

Design is in Canberra’s DNA. From the time of Walter and Marion Griffin’s visionary design a century ago to iconic experimental modernist architecture of the 1950s and 60s, through to contemporary and sustainable design developments today, Canberra has been – and will always be – a living design laboratory.

Throughout November 2022, over 200 events, exhibitions, talks, tours, activations, markets, collaborations, artist studios and open homes will be showcased as DESIGN Canberra, transforming the nation’s capital into a new platform for the best in design. The festival, now in its 8th year, is for all interests and ages and most events are free.

‘Transformation’ is the theme of this year’s program – In the context of the upheaval and disruption of the global pandemic and other confronting experiences of 2020-21, we have a shared responsibility and extraordinary opportunity to achieve real transformation.
