As part of the New Student Precinct Project, Next Wave have been curating public art and programs at the Parkville campus.
Through a series of installations, artist-led participatory programming and mentorship opportunities, the project seeks to amplify marginal voices, disrupt historical narratives and open the University’s pedagogy. Embracing disruption, the transitional, forgotten and peripheral, Next Wave programming provides an opportunity for innovative thinking around the past, present and future of the site, as well as the way we live, think and learn; as individuals and a community.
Join the Next Wave team for a free tour of the commissioned artworks currently on display around the University of Melbourne.
The tour will feature talks and performances by leading artists in collaboration with students, as well as a ceremony to award the winner of the ‘New School Art Prize’.
