5 Nov 2018 to 25 Nov 2018
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.
DESIGN Canberra will experiment with new ideas and expand the most successful programs into new directions in the 2018 festival. Over 100 events, exhibitions, talks, tours, activations, markets, collaborations, artist studios and open homes will once again transform the nation’s capital into a new platform for the best in design. The festival, now in its 5th year, is for all interests and ages and most events are free.
Presented by Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre.
DESIGN Canberra 2018 will celebrate the strong geometry present throughout our city and the ways it creates human, creative and global connections from Australia’s city of design. Weekly spotlights include:
Week 1: Canberra an international city of design
Week 2: Canberra icons
