Partners & Donors

We are grateful to all of our partners for their generous support of Australian innovation, creativity and design. Whether it's government support, or the continued patronage of our valued donors, gifts of all sizes, big and small, help us to continue to deliver a diverse creative program that centres through contemporary craft and design in Australia.

Australian Design Centre acknowledges the support and contribution of the NSW Government through Create NSW and the Visual Arts and Crafts Strategy, and the Australian government through the Australia Council for the Arts and the Visions of Australia: Regional Exhibition Touring Program.
