Public Art in Canberra City: Self-guided tour designed by Deborah Clark

To connect with audiences who cannot physically make it to Canberra during the festival, DESIGN Canberra is curating a DESIGN Anytime program. This new program includes self-guided tours of iconic architecture and contemporary design throughout Canberra. This will promote and celebrate Canberra as a global city of design every day of the year.

Deborah Clark is an art historian who has had an extensive professional engagement with the visual arts in Canberra, where she has been a curator, editor, writer, lecturer, and active member of the arts community for 30 years. Deborah has an enduring interest in the art, architecture and urban fabric of Canberra. Join her on this self-guided version of her walking tours.

This walking tour of public art begins in Ainslie Place, goes to City Walk, Petrie Plaza and Garema Place, and follows London Circuit around to Knowles Place on the other side of city Hill. It will take around 45 minutes to an hour.
