Craft ACT: Expression of Interest

Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre is calling for expressions of interest to participate in an exciting new exhibition they are presenting in partnership with the Museum of Australian Democracy (MoAD) at Old Parliament House to which celebrates the beautiful design elements of Old Parliament House.

The brief for this project is broad: to design and produce works in response to the historic furniture in the existing exhibition Suites, Seats and Suits: Fine Furniture of Provisional Parliament House. The artwork will sit alongside existing furniture pieces and may explore the piece itself, the maker, the materials, or the tools. The emphasis will be on design.

The exhibition will open on 13 November 2014 to coincide with the DESIGN Canberra festival and will run for twelve months. The exhibition will also coincide with major Canberra events including the Enlighten Festival in 2015 and Floriade 2015.

Applications are open to professional, practicing craft practitioners and designer makers who have a demonstrated history of excellence in their practice. The project may require selected artists to participate in community engagement activities, such as an artist talk.  Please find attached the EOI form and information package, which can also be downloaded from
