MADE is a forum for the discussion of media, architecture and design in Edmonton. We serve the general public, and professionals in the fields of architecture, graphic design, industrial design, landscape architecture, interior design, photography, fine art, and film, to name a few.
MADE supports the Edmonton creative community by hosting events, and providing opportunities for local designers to explore new ideas and showcase their work.
MADE is operated by a volunteer board and is a registered not-for-profit organization under the Alberta Societies Act.
MADE is supported by the Edmonton Arts Council and the City of Edmonton.
MADE was founded in 2000 under the name Media, Art & Design Exposed! in Edmonton by a small group of Edmontonians seeking to enrich the public's awareness and appreciation for art, design, and architecture.
Since that time we have witnessed a transformation in the way that architecture and design are viewed in our city, including more media coverage and editorial journalism on the subject, the formation of the Edmonton Design Committee, and the creation of many award-winning projects.
