Design Canberra presents Nurture

Community Event

26 Nov 2021 to 28 Nov 2021 Once Only Event

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 Nurture program consists of various events to highlight the talents of Craft ACT members, and provide learning opportunities to all:
The ‘Online Craft and Design Auction’ will display the contemporary artworks of it’s members, ‘Mindful Making’ will produce workshops for all with Craft ACT artists across a variety of mediums, ‘Thrive Workshops’ will provide professional development for makers, a video-interview series called ‘Studio Stories’ aims to discover the stories behind the work of local makers from Canberra, the ‘Solid Gold Craft ACT 50th Birthday Party’, the introduction of the ‘Craft + Design Lover Membership’, and ‘Discover’, a partnership with the City Renewal Authority to commission several artists during 2022.
