Digital artwork call-out for outdoor exhibition - 'In this together'

This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the reconciliation walks of 2000, when people from all backgrounds came together to walk across the nation and show their support for a more reconciled Australia.

In recognition of this, the New Student Precinct Project is seeking digital artwork from both staff and students that reflect the National Reconciliation Week 2020 theme 'In this together' for an upcoming Outdoor Gallery exhibition on the Parkville campus.

The exhibition will be physically located in the Outdoor Gallery space in Porters Lane and launched virtually during National Reconciliation Week (27 May - 3 June).
