DESIGN Canberra Festival + OBJECT SUBJECT I JOIN US Nov 8-9

DESIGN Canbera Festival

Object Subject at DESIGN Canberra Festival, the second iteration of the national design writer’s conference, explores ‘Design Responsibilities.’ Created for practitioners, the symposium unpacks social, environmental and ethical issues and works to build critical and creative thinking around ethical creative practice.

Essential strategy intel for designers, practitioners, writers, policy makers, curators and editors working in both public and private contexts.

Held annually over 3 weeks in November, presented by CRAFT ACT, the AUTHENTIC DESIGN ALLIANCE® joins the festival Program for the third year – visit the festival site for full event announcement.
