Community Education Programs

Community Education Programs are designed to enhance the life of our community through curated masterclasses, lectures, courses, cultural tours and special events. Drawing from the rich and extensive cultural wealth and expertise of our academics and cultural partners, these programs bring together members of the public, students, alumni and University staff to explore a diverse range of topics and issues, and to engage in life-long learning opportunities.

The Faculty works collaboratively with our partners to run these programs. Partners include, but are not limited to; the National Gallery of Victoria, State Library of Victoria, Melbourne Museum, and Ian Potter Museum of Art.

NGV Floor Talk
We SO enjoyed our evening at the Masterpieces of the Hermitage! We DO thank the Faculty of Arts for the special invitation. From our warm and friendly welcome on arrival to the generous nibbles and celebratory drinks - and the enthusiasm of the speakers - to the absolute spectacle and inspiration of the exhibition - one did not know where to look - altogether a night to remember. There was so much to absorb - we WILL be back. Participant from the Melbourne Masterclasses: The Life and Legacy of Catherine the Great
