The 2018 Craft ACT members show will celebrate and explore the Canberra region’s distinct design identity defined by place, craftsmanship and experimentation.
Placemaking is designing with the past, present and future in mind, to develop identity and pride, and to increase social and cultural capital. Canberra is a city of design and a place of makers who bring skills, knowledge, dedication and commitment to create their craft and nourish our community. Acclaimed designers, makers and craftspeople – including jewellers, glass and textiles artists, ceramicists, fashion and furniture designers – are globally connected but choose to live, work and make in the Canberra region. For nearly 50 years, Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre has supported these artists and helped to establish a creative and closely-knit community.
