2022 Graduate Art Prize event

The GSA Graduate Art Prize incorporates the GSA Craft Prize and is an annual event as part of our Engaged and Healthy Communities mandate. This event champions creativity and reflects the diversity of students’ interests outside their area of study.

This year, the GSA Graduate Art Prize was held at The Arts Centre Melbourne in October, along with a virtual gallery in a prestigious annual event showcasing the talent of the UOM graduate student community.

This year’s theme is ‘resilience! We’ve all been under unprecedented restrictions and how we relate to resilience over this time is how you can express what resilience means to you!
