New School Art Prize and the Participatory Art Workshop Series

The New Student Precinct, in partnership with Next Wave, is proud to present two student arts opportunities: the New School Art Prize and the Participatory Art Workshop Series.

Open to all University of Melbourne students, both programs are outstanding opportunities for students to showcase their creativity on the Parkville campus.

NEW SCHOOL ART PRIZE: The New School Art Prize invites students to submit an image in response to a curatorial prompt for the chance to be awarded a $1500 art prize. The successful student would also have their image reproduced as a temporary vinyl billboard presented on the east wall of the Peter Hall building.

PARTICIPATORY ART WORKSHOP SERIES: The Workshop Series will be presented by artist collectives A Centre for Everything, Public Assembly, Jamie Lewis and Dan Koop. Students have the choice to participate in one workshop series to develop new creative works collaboratively as a group, with each workshop series culminating in a temporary public art installation or performance. All workshops are free to participate in with catering provided.
