DESIGN CANBERRA FESTIVAL 2022

The DESIGN Canberra Festival is presented on Ngunnawal Country.

Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as

the traditional custodians of the ACT and surrounding areas. We honour and

respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and the

contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We aim to respect

cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of all Indigenous people.

A message from the CEO

The DESIGN Canberra Festival, presented by Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre,

contributes to the soul of Canberra and our identity as a creative capital and a city

of design. Design is in Canberra’s DNA with First Nation people’s strong ongoing

cultural and spiritual connections to this city and region - in which making, and

design are embedded within cultural practice. Canberra has always been a

dynamic design laboratory and place of creative enterprise which is embodied in

the Griffins’ visionary design for the city, Canberra’s iconic modernist architecture;

and its thriving contemporary sustainable design, craft and art industries.

This year’s festival responds to the theme of Transformation and invites us to

speculate on how we might transform our city, our community and our world

through design and creative practice. After two years of the pandemic, the

Festival makes an impressive comeback - with the 2022 program promising to be

bigger than ever before with over 200 events including symposiums, talks, tours,

exhibitions, public art installations, and workshops for audiences of all ages.

The DESIGN Canberra Festival is delivered through extraordinary collaboration

between artists, designers, craftspeople, industry, sponsors, educational

institutions, organisations and supporters; whose creativity and commitment

contributes to community wellbeing and identity; and to embedding

contemporary craft, making and design at the center of everyday life in Australia’s

capital, a global city of design.

+TRANSFORMATION

DESIGN Canberra 2022 celebrates the theme of Transformation.

In the context of the challenges our community and our world have faced over

the last few years including the global pandemic, the climate emergency, the fires,

and the floods; we have a shared responsibility and an opportunity to achieve real

transformation.

The ninth edition of the DESIGN Canberra Festival asks how can we and should

we transform our world though design? Design thinking and creative enterprise

have the capacity to solve the big issues of our time, improve our wellbeing; and

to foster a vibrant, equitable, sustainable and innovative society.

The Festival theme arose from planning for Craft ACT’s 50th - golden -

anniversary which took place in 2021. Inspired by the symbolism of gold and the

ways that artists and designers, like alchemists, transform raw materials and ideas

into objects, spaces buildings and concepts.

Since 1971 Craft ACT has played a vital role in sustaining Australia’s high-quality

studio practice and supporting craftspeople, designers and audiences. We are

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.

+DESIGNER-IN-RESIDENCE

Canberra-based artist and educator Lucy Irvine has been selected as the 2022

Designer-in-Residence. We commissioned Lucy to create a signature work which

defines the look and feel of this year’s festival and to develop a site-specific

public art installation to be presented during the Festival in November 2022.

Lucy Irvine’s work transforms the traditional craft practice of weaving into

sculptural installations. Lucy repurposes mundane, utilitarian materials like

expansion joint foam, paper fasteners and cable ties, transforming them into

beautiful and acclaimed public artwork.


+DESIGNER-IN-RESIDENCE

In creating The Stills, Irvine has revisited two small sections of weaving, cast them

in bronze, then used repetition and pattern forming to show the iterative process

of transformation. The artist explains: 'Our appreciation of transformation can too

easily rely upon a definitive before and after. What if transformation could also

be an ongoing process without a beginning or an end, existing in a million small

interrelations that are, for example, happening long before the materials are in

hand and long after the work is on the wall?' Irvine describes her new work as a

‘woven cinema’, capturing transformation in stop motion: frame by frame we see

change as reassuringly measurable.

Limited edition signature works will be available for sale during the DESIGN

Canberra Festival at the Hub Shop.

EVERY BOTTLE OF PROSECCO DOC

IS AN EXPERIENCE OF ITALIAN EXCELLENCE,

BUT ONLY IF IT’S AUTHENTIC.

Drink responsibly

WHEN YOU TOAST, BE ORIGINAL!

Only authentic Prosecco DOC has the government seal on the neck of the

bottle and it’s never sold on tap or cans. Always produced within the nine

provinces of Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia, in Northeast Italy, its unique taste

expresses the essence of the Prosecco DOC Dreamland.
