Sydney Design Festival 2018


2 – 11 March 2018



From 2 to 11 March 2018, the Sydney Design Festival will be presenting Australian and international design. The programme, which this year is organised on the theme of “Call to Action”, is made up of many presentations, workshops and exhibitions taking place in institutions in and around Sydney.


The “Call to Action” theme refers to the leading role that design should play in a world which is changing ever more quickly. The Powerhouse Museum is the headquarters of the Sydney Design Festival and its central information point. The museum’s offering can be enjoyed even at night as its opening hours have been extended for the period of the festival. Included is the contemporary design exhibition, “Common Goods”, that poses ethical, social and ecological challenges, and “Design Nation”, co-curated by the comedian and design enthusiast Tim Ross. This tells the stories behind classic Australian design objects in the museum’s collection.

The extensive programme throughout the whole of Sydney makes design accessible to the public and includes a family day on 4 March, the National Design Summit on 8 March and a Makers’ Market on 10 March. The design festival organisers have set themselves the goal of enthusing the general public about design, presenting established and new design, and flagging up future challenges – and all this in an inclusive, representative and interdisciplinary way.
