Object Subject Conference Opening Reception

Opening Reception

Exploring the way design speaks to us, and the way we speak about design, the inaugural national design writing conference will be held at Roy Grounds’ iconic 1959 Shine Dome as a signature DESIGN Canberra event. For the first time, designers, writers, critics, bloggers, researchers, collectors, makers, curators and design lovers will come together to explore the creative and important ways that writing has become essential to the future of design.

The conference will take place during the DESIGN Canberra festival, which celebrates and promotes Canberra as a global city of design, transforming the nation’s capital into a new platform for experimentation and design. Extend your stay and enjoy events, exhibitions, talks, tours, activations, markets, collaborations, artist studios and open homes from the festival program over the weekend. Object Subject is realised with the support of Copyright Agency Cultural Fund and British Council. Click here for the full conference program.
