Gryphon Gallery
1888 Building (Graduate Student Association), University of Melbourne, Parkville, 3010, Victoria



Join us for a special showcase awards ceremony and exhibition hosted by legendary comedian and environmentalist Rod Quantock. 

The beautiful Gryphon Gallery (1888 Building) will showcase the finest entries of the Sustainability Prize, displaying the biodiversity of native Australian flora and fauna visible across University of Melbourne campuses. Submissions will be both pleasing and enlightening. 

The GSA Sustainability Prize is a fantastic new initiative. Graduate students have taken snaps of native animals and plants. This is your opportunity to view the entries submitted for the GSA Sustainabilty Prize in person, and the winners of the competition will be announced at the event!

Registration is required for entry – tickets can be printed or displayed on smartphones.

Drinks and canapés from the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) will be provided for all registered attendees.
