ARTIST APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR MUDFEST 2017!
What is Mudfest?
Mudfest is a week-long creative arts festival celebrating the diverse and exciting world of student arts at the University of Melbourne. Since its humble beginnings in 1990 Mudfest has become a significant driving-force of creative innovation, and has established itself as a cultural icon on the emerging arts scene in Melbourne. Presented every two years by the University of Melbourne Student Union, Mudfest nurtures, encourages and supports new and innovative arts practices amongst students, while also providing them with professional and creative development opportunities.
Mudfest offers students the unique opportunity to be a part of a festival environment that encourages cross-pollination with other disciplines and approaches, as well as fosters an environment of inclusion and development. In 2017 Mudfest will maintain the initiative of showcasing works that are environmentally sustainable, and accessible to people living with disability, encouraging artists to share their work in an inclusive and ethical environment.
The Mudfest team acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work, learn and celebrate. We pay our respect to their elders past and present, and future.
