Australian Design Centre 60th Birthday Party

When

Thursday 16 May from 6pm to 9pm

Cost

General Admission: $25.00

Australian Design Centre turns 60 and we’re having a party! Join us to celebrate 60 years supporting and promoting Australia’s best and brightest designer makers, since 1964.

Special guest host for the evening is former ADC Chair, Professor Anthony Burke, host of ABC’s Restoration Australia, Grand Design Transformations and Grand Designs Australia. We’re planning a fun night with our community including food, drinks, music and a couple of short (we promise) speeches to honour the occasion.

A small contribution of $25 a ticket will help us to cover the catering costs.

Be among the first to see Treasures, a very special exhibition of work by 10 masters of Australian craft and the 10 artists they have nominated as future stars. To support ADC into the future, 20 works from the artists’ archives or new work by the next generation will be available to purchase for your collection.

Come and kick up your heels for a fabulous evening of creative fun and festivity.

Tickets are limited so book soon.
