2024 Craft + Design Canberra Festival Call Out

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. 

Applications are now open for a range of programs, exhibitions and events that relate to the Festival theme of Regenerate and the objective of the festival to showcase excellence in contemporary craft and design, celebrate Canberra as a global city of design and align with the Craft + Design Canberra's strategic vision, values and aspirations.

Festival programs may include but are not limited to:

  • events
  • exhibitions
  • public art installations
  • public talks/symposiums
  • publication launches
  • tours
  • performances

Applications have been extended until March 1 2024 and all details can be found below.
