Design Tasmania's vision is that Tasmania is recognised as a place of international significance. This will be achieved through education, design, innovation and pursuing the balanced application of technology with craft.
PROMOTING CONTEMPORARY CRAFT & DESIGN.
Design Tasmania promotes contemporary craft and design and is home to the Design Tasmania Wood Collection plus a dynamic program of contemporary craft and design related exhibitions and projects. Design Tasmania is a founding member and secretariat of the Tasmanian Design Alliance and coordinates the annual Design Tasmania Awards.
Design Tasmania is a not-for-profit organisation with operations, exhibitions and programs supported in part through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts and by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments. Design Tasmania is also assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
