Creative Arts

Want to get involved in making art on campus? Fantastic! Let’s dive right in.

The University of Melbourne has a thriving student arts community, and the Creative Arts Department exists to support all students in being part of it regardless of skill level or previous experience.

We want YOU.

Whether you’re looking music, dance, theatre, film, performance art, visual art or a little bit of everything…we’re here to make sure you get to do it all! Because art is what makes life worth living.

Our department manages the Creative Arts events, programs and grants, and boy, 2019 is a big year!

From botanical drawing, to Arty Parties, Talking Out of Your Arts, creative writing, student theatre, sustainable and accessible art making, Queer Art, Happy-Healthy Art Making workshops and Mudfest the largest student run creative arts festival in the southern hemisphere! And much much more! The office this year consists of Creative Arts Officers Ellie Hamill and Lucy Holz and the gorgeous committee including Lucy Seale, Nicholas Kirby, Reis Low, Daisy Ni, Fiona Xia, Conor Clements and Nicola Eenik.

There’s lots of information on this website and on our facebook page (chuck us a like while you’re there!) You can also email us at arts@union.unimelb.edu.au or call 03 8344 3872 for more information, or visit us in our Creative Arts Office on Level 1 of Union House next to the Union House Theatre Office. And if you haven’t had enough of us you can also follow us on instagram.

We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations. We acknowledge their elders past and present and pay our respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. We would also like to acknowledge that this is stolen land and the sovereignty over this land was never ceded.
