One of the University's roles is to act as an advocate for the arts and reinforce the need for public support. 


We believe that education and research in the creative fields is vital for the cultural and economic growth of local and global communities, and encompasses a range of methods including critical and creative inquiry, artistic creation and making, partnership and exhibition. We respect and value diversity, and enhance bridging and accessibility via our aboriginal, international, financial, internal, and external capacity building.

Through state-of-the art digital technology we explore new means of prototyping and production, create new employment avenues and redefine contemporary creative and aesthetic expression through materials, making and digital research.
