Transformative Repair x ADC showcases an exciting and eclectic mix of objects on display at the Australian Design Centre from 2 - 10 June 2022

Promoting the value of reuse and repair. This project develops and tests new models for the sustainable use of materials and products. 

A selection of emerging and leading Australian artists, designers and craftspeople were commissioned to reinterpret objects using innovative approaches to repair and reuse. The objects were provided by notable climate change activists, creatives and champions of design from Sydney and the Illawarra. 

Lead Research Investigators, Guy Keulemans and Trent Jansen developed the project to test new models for the sustainable use of materials and products and establish new opportunities for consumers and collectors to thoughtfully repair their broken things. 

On Thursday 9 June 2022 Australian Design Centre will host an auction of the creatively repaired broken objects on display.
