What is Canberra Modern?

Canberra Modern is an annual program of interconnected events which aim to showcase Canberra’s unique mid-century places. 

In 2017 - Canberra Modern is being presented as part of DESIGN Canberra, celebrating and promoting Canberra as a global city of design (6-26 November).


The events aim to increase awareness of Canberra’s modernist character, heritage and uniqueness, highlighting both public and private places and the spaces that link them.  Through engagement with the community, Canberra Modern aims to promote conservation, protection and appreciation of the places which make an irreplaceable contribution to Canberra’s historic urban and designed cultural landscape. 

Highlight: Darren Bradley photography tour on 12 November
