Arts alumni takeovers

Looking for a little escape from the day-to-day? UniMelb alumni around the world are sharing a glimpse of their lives in isolation.

Meet Danielle

Head of External Relations at the McKell Institute and President of the University’s Sydney Alumni Association, Danielle Asciak is a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Music alum. When she isn’t busy collaborating with fellow alumni on how they can support each other and current students, Danielle is cooking up a storm and pursuing her passion for cabaret.

Meet Gin

Bachelor of Arts and PhD alum Gin Chee founded an art gallery, Zhan Art Space, with her brother – who is also an alum - in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. When she’s not working at the gallery, Gin is volunteering as President of the Malaysian Alumni Association. Take a sneak peek behind the scenes of the gallery’s latest exhibition, Gold, while it’s currently closed to the public. And don’t forget to join Gin for a look at a sumptuous (albeit socially distanced) meal at her favourite local restaurant.
