Next Wave Partnership

The New Student Precinct Project is collaborating with the artistic platform Next Wave to produce a series of public art installations, programming and mentorship initiatives. Programming will provide students and staff with the opportunity to work alongside artists to produce engaging site-specific creative works, learn from experts and connect across disciplines.

Next Wave will present new work that amplifies marginal voices, opens historical narratives and reimagines physical and intellectual learning environments. Embracing the transitional, forgotten and peripheral, the platform provides an opportunity for innovative thinking around the past, present and future of the site.

Current Initiatives
