Compass Rose: Psychogeography of Campus Art Exhibition

The New Student Precinct x Next Wave are looking for creative reflections on your campus experience to form part of an interactive digital map and online exhibition.

What do you miss from being present with peers in classrooms? Is it seeing faces rather than interfaces, or unexpected encounters with the physical and intellectual landscapes of campus?

The University of Melbourne’s New Student Precinct project, together with curatorial partner Next Wave, present Compass Rose – a creative arts exhibition exploring the psychology of campus architecture through an interactive digital map and online exhibition.

We are inviting students to tell us about the associations and sensations that emerge as they remember campus.

We are looking for creative reflections in the form of memories, dreams, nostalgia, mythology, history, politics and poetics of space, and seeking media that can be presented online, such as poetry, creative writing, video, sound, digital art, illustration and photography. Submissions can be attributed or anonymous.

Selected artists will be provided with support to further develop their work including technical and editorial mentorship and access to creative writing and art making workshops.

Submissions close on Wednesday 21 October 2020. To learn more and submit an entry, click the button below:
