Calendar of major events

Major events | Exhibitions | Talks | Tours

Our world is enveloped by an orbit of festivals, exhibitions and online talks where we can discover the beautiful objects that are being made today.

Garland’s orbit is a listing of upcoming events, including festivals, fairs and conferences, for craft & design in the Indo Pacific and beyond. Upcoming events are featured in our email newsletter and can be the subject of stories in our issues, which are shared across our social media.

You can submit information to be featured in our platform: events, exhibitions, talks and craft tours. For ongoing coverage, consider being in the Loop.
