DESIGN Canberra Festival
|Returning for its fifth year from November 5 - 25 2018 the DESIGN Canberra Festival will celebrate the ongoing growth and recognition of Canberra as a global city of design with a full festival program of over 100 events.|
This year's festival brings one of the most eclectic programs yet. Highlights include: one of the most significant Japanese figures in contemporary architecture Kengo Kuma; Australia's leading practitioner of the late 20th century organic style of architecture Enrico Taglietti; the 2018 designer-in-residence furniture maker Chelsea Lemon; Design Diplomacy events in collaboration with Helsinki Design Week; Dark MOFO favourite known for his lighting designs Matt Adey of House of Vnholy; a type artist's conference; hands-on workshops Tim Ross and more.
This year some of the biggest names in design will join Canberra's burgeoning design community to exhibit speak and inspire audiences at the ACT's fastest growing festival.
Whether you're a lover of design travel culture or simply enjoy getting amongst the action the DESIGN Canberra Festival offers versatility to suit everyone's taste. Food wine and design are a feature of the 2018 program celebrating the best from the Canberra region.
Enjoy a one-off design dinner at Canberra's two hatted restaurant Aubergine and local wine and music at the award-winning Pop Inn Bar. Festival favourites ' open studios open homes and architecture tours ' are back again in 2018. An opportunity to engage more deeply with design will be presented at three programs: the Enrico Taglietti symposium an Urban Renewal forum and Typism a type artist conference.
Although much of the festival is free to access and welcomes all ages some of the major festival highlights require tickets which can now be bought online at designcanberrafestival.com.au.
