The University is celebrating Arts Week during the first week of September to promote local arts and crafts. We’d like to invite students and staff to participate in our Arts Market.
You can sell handmade arts and craft, up-cycled or recycled items, body products and more.
The Arts Market will be held at Footscray Park Campus.
Date: Wednesday 3 September 2014
We will provide a trestle table for you to sell or promote your arts and crafts products or services.
National Campus band competition has a heat in a couple of weeks. There is a $5000 prize for the national winner as well as the opportunity to play at Australian University Games in front of an audience of more than 1800 students.
Enter the Art Prize
Good luck to all and keep us in the loop with your market stalls, band entries and art entries, so we can come, see hear and buy your work and support you!

Some Questions that arose from the video today
Value, uniqueness, scarcity, size Cost?
The 70s art boom?
What does it mean to be a photographer. What is a photograph worth?
Editing what does it mean in the 21st century?
Most expensive photograph ever?
Authenticity? Digital is nothing more than a series of 1s and 0s?
Art and money uneasy bedfellows?
Art or commerce which has more value?
Photojounalistic values? Where did they came from, who decided what they were?
Boundaries between commercial art and fine art?
Painting or photography? [Retouching/Manipulation existed from the start]
80 billion photos in 2007, how many this year?
- Without question, the 21st Century will be a photographic century. Photography will play a more fundamental role in the functioning of 21st Century societies than 20th Century practitioners working with light-sensitive emulsions and photographic papers could have ever dreamed. So while in one sense photography might be “over,” in another, it’s barely gotten going. And we haven’t seen anything yet.
Please bring a camera to class next week if you own one. Also if bringing a camera to class, bring your manual for your camera as well please.
