Become an ADC supporter by making a donation today

Australia needs an innovative design-focused future to help solve the big challenges.

Tackling waste and pollution through new manufacturing and sustainable solutions and making more liveable and socially-connected cities are just some of the issues that need creative solutions. A focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/ Design and Mathematics) in our education system is essential for producing future innovative and creative thinkers.

Australian Design Centre (ADC) is a platform that showcases, mentors and promotes makers and designers by:

  • making exhibitions that inspire audiences;
  • building marketplaces for artists to test and sell their work; and
  • presenting conversations and events that ignite creative ideas through craft and design.

In 2017, we presented 10 exhibitions, worked with over 350 artists, presented more than 100 events including our popular curated outdoor markets, created a new festival Sydney Craft Week and supported close to 100 makers in our retail space Object Shop. You can read about our success in the Annual Report here.

ADC continues to have success with Government project funding but donations are critical for our core infrastructure.
