DESIGN CANBERRA FESTIVAL

DESIGN Canberra celebrates and promotes Canberra as a global city of design. 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 2017, over 100 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 design and experimentation. The festival, now in its 4th year, is for all interests and ages and most events are free.
