DESIGN Canberra embraces the live festival experience

Having arts festival withdrawals? DESIGN Canberra is offering over 200 events, from open studios and exhibitions to walking tours, putting human connection back into creativity.

DESIGN Canberra announced its program this week, offering a bumper engagement with the city and its creative community. Over 200 events will signal that Canberra is again live, engaging, and open for business.

Presented over three weeks from 9-29 November, the festival will enable people to once again engage intimately with makers, from a line-up of studio visits to bespoke walking tours; and from chewy talks by industry leaders that use the lens of now to revisit Canberra’s design history, through to new public commissions.
