Established in 1975, The George Paton Gallery was the first institutionally supported experimental art space in Australia. The Gallery’s exhibition programs have forecast emerging trends in alternative practice, including feminist art movements, new and hybrid media, the phenomenon of the curator, and the return of painting. Since 1994, the gallery has focused on student exhibitions. Many of Australia’s leading practitioners are past exhibitors of the George Paton Gallery.

The Creative Workshops program sees a variety of distinguished professional practitioners lead creative arts workshops throughout the academic year. The workshops are free for students, open and applicable to all skill levels, and provide a fun, recreational space to explore new skills and ideas. The Creative Workshops program also includes one-off events, training sessions, seminars and walking tours. See the Workshops page for more information.

We, at Arts Programs UMSU Inc. would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which our events take place, the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge their elders past and present and pay our respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in attendance. We would also like to acknowledge that this is stolen land and the sovereignty over this land was never ceded.
