Fifty years of Craft ACT

 In 2021, Craft ACT is celebrating our 50th – golden – anniversary. 

Since 1971 CraftACT has played a vital role in sustaining Australia’s high-quality studio practice and supporting craftspeople, designers and audiences.

We're proudly one of Australia’s longest continuous-running membership organisations in the visual arts and we celebrate the many ways our close-knit community has nurtured and transformed artists’ practice for half a century.

Over the year we will be adding content to this page. Share your memories on our Instagram and Facebook.
