FROM PIER TO PROSPERITY

An immersive audio-visual tracing the histories of four migrants who braved the seas and left their homes and families to seek a more prosperous life.

The works will be on continuous loop throughout the week. Find the Digital Studio's immersive rooms on Level 2 of Arts West (Building 148), West Wing

These visual poems were created by Faculty of Arts students in the “Encounters with Writing” subject in late 2017, as a group project with Multicultural Arts Victoria.

The theme for Diversity Week 2018 is Proud to Belong. Find out more about the exciting program of keynote speakers, workshops and social events on the Faculty of Arts website.
