RMIT's School of Art is a hub for emerging artists, researchers and practitioners to engage with contemporary art and photography.
It is an internationally renowned site for innovation and diversity in contemporary art, craft, photography and sound. Founded on a deep commitment to praxis, alternative ways of knowing and the role of art in global society, it aspires to achieve real and lasting impact.
As a seedbed for emerging artists, the School focuses on instilling sustainable self-belief and confidence in the next generation of Australian and international arts practitioners. It promotes a studio culture of making through arts practices that are self-reflective and are informed through critical enquiry and research.
Our photography programs support students developing advanced skills and knowledge in photography practice, and the role of photography in contemporary visual language. Recognising the diverse nature of the global photographic industires, our programs centralise the interdisciplinary and collaborative nature of photography, and support students through an ongoing praxis of industry and cultural engagement. Students locate their practice within our three studio areas; Art Centered Photography, Client Centered Photography and World Centered Photography.
Set in the centre of Melbourne, Australia's cultural capital and consistently rated as the most liveable city in the world. Located on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people, the School enjoys a 130-year history of graduating artists, photographers and craftspeople with skilled hands and cultivated minds ready for both life and work.
