About Design Canberra
WELCOME TO DESIGN CANBERRA FESTIVAL 2019
DESIGN Canberra celebrates and promotes Canberra as a global city of design.
DESIGN Canberra 2019 employs the concept of utopia to harness the power of imagination to shape the future of design – in Canberra and the world.
Canberra is the perfect site for an examination of utopia in 2019. 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 always been a living design laboratory.
Delivered in collaboration with industry, associations and educational institutions committed to the design, arts and creative industries, the DESIGN Canberra festival is a city-wide celebration that transforms the nation’s capital into a hub of design each year.
Throughout November 2019, over 200 events, exhibitions, talks, tours, markets, artist studios and open homes will be showcased as DESIGN Canberra. Now in its 6th year, the festival is for all interests and ages and most events are free.
Presented by Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre
