Join leading Canberra Creatives as they share tips and tricks for pursuing satisfying careers in design and creative arts. For everyone of all ages, adults and students. 

The second annual Design Canberra Creative Careers event will be held at Radford College, in partnership with Design Canberra. 

Creative Careers is an opportunity for all Canberrans, including from the Radford community, to become inspired for a career in the design and creative arts areas. Special invited guests provide a glimpse into their journey towards success in creative industries. Hear industrial designer, silversmith, graphic designer, curator and architect among others, including Collegian Ben Landau who says:

I use design research to analyse systems, and artistic methodologies to tamper with them. I construct experiences, objects and performances which are interactive or invite the audience to participate.

An information hub of universities including Australian National University, University of Canberra, Charles Sturt University, The Academy of Interactive Entertainment, and Whitehouse Institute of Design, will provide a chance to discuss relevant courses and pathways.

The winner of the Design Canberra Photographic Competition celebrating Canberra’s mid-century modernist architecture will also be announced.
