After an extensive risk planning process, Craft ACT has announced the decision to cancel the 2021 DESIGN Canberra festival that was set to be presented this November. Design Canberra will instead present a ‘Nurture’ program to support artists impacted by Covid-driven cancellation and use creativity to support the Canberra community.
‘Design Canberra presents Nurture’, draws on the well documented benefits of creativity to support wellbeing and is aimed at supporting our artists and the Canberra community during this difficult time. The program is specifically tailored to focus on the well-being aspects of creativity, making and crafting as tools for health and recovery; and as an antidote to the stresses brought about by the pandemic.
The full ‘Design Canberra presents Nurture’ program will be announced on Tuesday 19 October 2021. To register interest in the Nurture program and be the first to hear about its programming and get access to tickets, please sign up via the from below.
