Acknowledgement of Country
UNSW Art & Design acknowledges and pays respect to the traditional owners of the land upon which it stands; the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation. We also acknowledge Gadigal Elders past, present and into the future.
As we share our own knowledge, teaching, learning and research practices within this faculty we also pay respect to the knowledge embedded forever within the Aboriginal Custodianship of Country.
Art, creativity, design and innovation are transformative and make the world a better place.
UNSW Art & Design is recognised as one of the world’s leading art and design schools, with an outstanding record for producing critically acclaimed artists, designers and media creatives.
We embrace an inquisitive, critical attitude, a belief in the power of art and design to impact the social, technological and environmental issues of our time.
We are proud of the creative learning environment we foster. Our rigorous and intensive art, design and media programs are studio practice based and industry engaged. Our approach is interdisciplinary, advancing tradition and challenging existing thinking.
At UNSW Art & Design we foreground experimentation and exploration in art and design, engaging in collaboration across science, engineering, the humanities and social sciences. Our teaching utilises the latest methods, underpinned by leading-edge technology and an innovative learning environment to inspire a new generation of creative thinkers.
Our faculty is comprised of dedicated educators, leading practitioners, researchers and thinkers spanning contemporary visual arts, creativity and culture, design and innovation. We are drawn from across the Asia Pacific region and globally and together we make Australia’s largest community of art and design students, practitioners, educators, scholars and researchers.
Welcome to UNSW Art & Design.
