5-28 November 2021.
This November Design Canberra will present an alternative program to support artists impacted by Covid. ‘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 program will include creative workshops (online and in person), online studio tours and interviews; an online art auction, a sketchbook challenge, professional development workshops for artists, and some public art commissions.
