Creative Arts

Art begins with risk.

Want to get involved in making ART on campus? If you don’t want to, will you reconsider? Pleeeeeease. Melbourne Uni hosts a thriving student arts community, and our office exists to support all students in being part of it regardless of skill level or previous experience.

We want YOU.

Whether you’re looking for life drawing, open mic nights, performance art, art talks, workshops, deeply political discussions about the nature and purpose of art, or just directions to the bathroom…We’re here to make sure you get to do it all. Just because you can.

You can email us at arts@union.unimelb.edu.au or call 03 8344 3872 for more information, or like us on www.facebook.com/umsuartsdepartment to keep up to date with all our events!

The Creative Arts Department manages all Creative Arts events, programs and grants, and consists of Co-Officers Harriet Wallace-Mead and Sara Laurena, and committee members Tom Crowley, Isabelle Knight, Karla Livingstone-Pardy, Grace Middleton, Claire Miller, and Jordan Peters.

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.
