Funding Success

ADC on Tour

Australia Council for the Arts has awarded Australian Design Centre two major project grants.

The first is $100,000 to support the infrastructure for our acclaimed national exhibition touring program ADC on Tour.  This is the third year in succession that we have been successfully awarded this funding which is testament to the excellence of our touring program. A program that has been shaped by many hands over two decades. 

The second grant is $188,000 to produce and tour a new exhibition Made/Worn: Australian Contemporary Jewellery. This exhibition will launch at ADC in April 2020 with a multi-state tour to follow.  Stay tuned for more information as the project takes shape.

Thank you to the Australia Council for the Arts and the peer assessors for this excellent result for contemporary craft and design.

The only way that we can leverage this government funding for projects is with the help of all of our partners, donors and supporters who make the work we do possible.

Creativity Matters!  If you want to help us to achieve more results like this please donate to our annual campaign.
