2024 CRAFT + DESIGN CANBERRA FESTIVAL

The 2024 Craft + Design Canberra Festival theme of Regenerate advocates for design thinking, imagination, collaboration and making by hand to support innovation and problem-solving, providing hope for our future. No longer is it enough to be sustainable, we must innovate to solve the big problems of our time, to reverse the devastating impacts of climate change and regenerate environments, relationships, and communities.

The Festival provides opportunities for artists, designers and craftspeople to make experimental work, connect with the community and generate income; and audiences to enjoy immersive inclusive experiences of the best in contemporary craft and design.
