The words 'Arts Collective' written in yellow letters on a coral background, with drawn figures of people being creative around it.

Creative Arts Collective

The CREATIVE ARTS COLLECTIVE provides a weekly meeting place for student artists, art appreciators and kind-of-want-to-try-art-casually-but-didn’t-know-where-to-go-ers to hang out, share tales of creative woe and triumph, find potential collaborators, embark on projects, and above all, get to know each other in a relaxed environment. What the collective does will be determined by the people who come.

Over the break and during semester, collective will now gather every Thursday from 4:00 – 5:00 PM AEST in a zoom call. Everyone interested is welcome to drop-in for as long or short a time as they want to meet fellow arty folk and work on their project while in the digital presence of others. 

The CREATIVE ARTS COLLECTIVE is a non-binding agreement to listen and be heard, a place to find and respond to others’ art, to sometimes test your work, and is welcome to all students regardless of skill level, disciplines and interests.

This space will be facilitated by your very fun, very cool Creative Arts Officers, Vaishnavi (she/her) and Merryn (she/her). We’re here to make you feel welcomed and supported and we’ll come up with themes and inspo each week if you’re feeling a bit stuck on what to make and create. We look forward to seeing you there!

Our zoom collective can be joined from THIS LINK. You can also keep up-to-date on collective news by hitting interested on this Facebook event.

We’ll see you every Friday at 4:30 PM AEST for some crafts and chats at the link below!
