Clarence City Council has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Clarence Prize for Excellence in Furniture Design due to the current uncertain conditions. The Clarence Prize has become a valuable feature in the design scene and we continue to believe in supporting the design community and championing excellence in design. We aim to reschedule the prize for 2021.
We thank the art and design communities for their ongoing support of our cultural programs.
