Tastings is an explosive showcase of ORIGINAL SHORT WORKS and works in development run by the UMSU Creative Arts Department. With over a decade’s worth of history, Tastings will take place in Semester 2 and provides emerging writers, performance makers, choreographers, directors, filmmakers and other student artists who can’t be categorised a mentorship with an industry professional, along with the opportunity to show your original short work in a facilitated public setting.

Making art in our current climate can be challenging, and Tastings 2020 will be responding to public health and safety advice along the way. However, the focus of Tastings is to develop new work, create your own lil gem that is not a fully fledged show yet, and we are committed to making that happen.

Applications are open from the 1st to 30th June, so we are hosting an INFO SESSION on zoom to tell you more about Tastings 2020 and to answer any questions you have about applying, developing or showing your work. Bring your ideas and your questions!

WHEN: Friday 5th June, 3pm – 4pm

WHERE: Zoom (https://unimelb.zoom.us/j/93724661657?pwd=UERvc3ZhZUh6dC9DSzBKS0U5bTltUT09)

We want to help you create your own lil gem!

While this event may be taking place in a digital space the UMSU Creative Arts Department would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which many of us live and work: the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We would also like to acknowledge that all land of so-called “Australia” is stolen and that sovereignty was never ceded.
