AUSTRALIAN DESIGN CENTRE

In response to Covid-19, Australian Design Centre invited 10 makers to participate in a new project called Isolate Make: Creative Resilience in a Pandemic. Working across a diversity of practice, these local makers share their process and final works made during Covid-19.

Isolate Make explores how creative practice may have changed during this time either as a result of social isolation, the associated restrictions and production challenges, or simply in response to the tragic global events.
