developments in craft and design
September has seen some very exciting developments, from Government changes to an active month of cultural developments for craft and design. Australia now has its first elected female Prime Minister, with Julia Gillard and the labor party re-elected for another term. We welcome Simon Crean MP, Federal Member for the Hotham Electorate in the House of Representatives as the new Minister for Regional Australia, Regional Development and Local Government, and Minister for the Arts. Craft Australia will be working closely with newly formed Government to present the developments and issues in the craft and design sector including the role of craft in design and innovation.
