Australian Design Centre is a major contemporary craft and design organisation igniting creative ideas and building cultural vibrancy. We take a lead role developing and supporting Australia’s craftspeople and designers to build audiences for their work globally. We do this through our extensive exhibition, festival, touring, retail, publishing and learning platforms.
Based in vibrant Darlinghurst, just ten minutes walk from the Sydney CBD, ADC includes three gallery spaces with a rotating exhibition program.
Purchase a unique gift from Object Shop featuring limited-edition jewellery, ceramics, homewares and textiles from over 100 leading and emerging Australian makers or enjoy the curated Makers Markets held in March and October.
Visit ADC for talks, workshops, masterclasses, films and special events throughout the year. From the expertly handcrafted to the latest advances in technology, from cross-disciplinary practice to the incredible knowledge, culture and traditions of continuing First Nations culture, our program engages the community in the possibility of making and design to creatively transform the lived experience.
General admission to the Centre and entry to all exhibitions is free.
