c/o Craft ACT: 2020 Craft ACT Members Exhibition opening

Join us at City Walk to celebrate the opening of c/o Craft ACT: 2020 Annual Members exhibition. This exhibition will showcase current trends in contemporary craft and design and illustrate how care underpins a maker’s commitments.

In line with the theme of the 7th edition of DESIGN Canberra (9-29 November 2020), the 2020 Craft ACT members exhibition will celebrate and explore the ways that care and caring is valuable and vital for contemporary craft practitioners, artists, designers and makers.

For the craft sector, as Kevin Murray (independent craft writer and curator) acknowledges, ‘The entry requirement for craft is a universal human capacity — care. This care for the world in using the gifts of nature to sustain and give meaning to our shared existence is an ideal to be found in all cultures.’

Curated by Craft ACT, this is showcase exhibition demonstrating the trends in contemporary craft and design in Australia by accredited practitioners from the ACT and surrounding region.

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.
