Thursday, 18 July to Saturday, 24 August 2013
The development of Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) has seen changes take place within the Creative Arts in Australian tertiary institutions. Primary practice-based and practice-led research has been incorporated into universities research recognition and funding frameworks. Concurrently, craft practitioners and designer makers are embracing digital technologies, research and design thinking, with innovation and advances in these areas changing the way they engage, design and create.
In response, Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre presents, Embracing Innovation Volume 3, an exhibition showcasing innovation in the creative arts, with a particular focus on craft and design. The exhibition showcases makers who are exploring these new areas of practice.
