UoN Services Arts Festival

UoN will come alive this September. Keep an eye on their page to find out about all the exhibitions, demonstrations, perfomances and workshops happening around campus!
Submissions now open for project funding.

The Festival will celebrate the importance of vibrant creative arts practice, collaboration and experimentation in enriching the student and staff experience of studying and working on Callaghan campus.

The Festival seeks to engage the whole campus community. Project funding and support of up to $2,000 is available to successful applicants.

Proposals for Arts Festival Project Funding and Support are requested not only from staff and students studying or teaching in the arts but equally from those active in the arts off campus. Students who apply for funding will have their creative project supported through SSAF funding while UoN staff will receive support for their creative project thanks to UoN Services.

All arts practitioners and enthusiasts who wish to share their passion and talent as part of the festival are encouraged to make a submission. For more information about the event please contact the Festival Coordinator directly: craig.foot@newcastle.edu.au

2013 Annual Student Art Prize

art prize

Curated by Benjamin Bourke

AUSTRALIANA has long been associated with the Arts & Craft movement of the late 19th to early 20th century. In recent years artist’s such as #LiamBenson, #DanieMellor, #FionaHall, #LouiseWeaver,  have imbued their practice with the stereotypes, the kitsch, the humorous, the political, the downright daggy, quirky and the cute in an effort to subvert, reclaim, establish, question or mock that which is considered ‘Australianness’.

 

All students of the University of Newcastle are asked to respond to AUSTRALIANA. A celebration or a critique, political or poetic, light hearted or full of heart, the choice is yours.
