Over the last 10 years the Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts and Cultural Development has been the major force in providing a pathway for the development of Indigenous Arts. These include visual and performing arts, design, film and television and production. The Centre identifies, recruits and supports potential and practicing Indigenous artists to study and refine their skills at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) and the Melbourne Conservatorium of music.

On offer at the Wilin Centre is a multidisciplinary 'breadth subject' in Ancient and Contemporary Indigenous Arts. The 'Lin Onus' conversations (i.e. these sessions centre on Indigenous arts, histories and future direction) fosters collaboration and creative engagement between Indigenous and migrant peoples.

The Faculty of VCA (Victorian College of the Arts) and MCM (Melbourne Conservatorium of Music) is committed to delivering the very best education to students and offer a full range of artistic disciplines. They aim to achieve the highest arts educational standards for Australia's next outstanding and emerging artistic practitioners.

Drop into the Wilin Centre at 234 St Kilda Road (Southbank Campus) St Kilda, on Sunday 17th August 2014 from 10am till 3pm for information sessions about studying at the VCA & MCM.

From 11.30am to 2pm, Breadth subject information sessions will be held at Tutorial Room 2 in the Elisabeth Murdoch building. Breadth is one of the aspects of the University's undergraduate degrees. The subjects give you knowledge and understanding across a broader range of disciplines, enabling you to develop insight, experience, and new ways of thinking in areas distinct from the main fields of study in your degree.

There will be a Pyrography (wood burning) workshop by Baungwurrung Artist Mick Harding and performances by SKIN Choir and Miss Amy Dowd.

RSVP via (03) 9035 9327 or wilin.centre@unimelb.edu.au
