Agency by Design: Expressive Design for Disability

An exhibition partnership between the Tuggeranong Arts Centre and Artisan Queensland, Agency By Design showcases over 50 objects – from artists across Australia and overseas, including jewellery, clothing and various technology designs to enhance socialization, provide access to assisted technology solutions or improve self-image.

The works speak to the needs of people living with a disability to take on an expressive life, beyond notions of basic living, beyond functionality – by looking at design tailored to physical and expressive individual needs.

The exhibition looks at how good design can engender agency in someone living with disability and includes work from designers who live with a disability, or organisations that work closely with the disability community.

DESIGN Canberra acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of the ACT and surrounding areas. We honour and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We aim to respect cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of all Indigenous people.
