Meet Jordine Cornish
Jordine Cornish has lived, worked and danced across Israel and Europe. Now her feet have landed back in Melbourne, where she is strengthening her creative career with a Master of Creative Arts Therapies (Dance Movement Therapy).
"Focusing on my artistic, performing, dance-making self in an international context for the past decade, it seems like a shift of gears to commence a masters in creative arts therapies on home soil. I’m curious about how I can weave my artistic and performing self with my new therapist self. Dancing forward, my focus is shifting to address issues of significance in local communities. I’m ambitious to create new artistic works with people in marginalised communities."
Faculty of Fine Arts and Music
The course is taught at the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music, the proud home of the Victorian College of the Arts and the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music.
Much of the teaching, research and performance takes place in, or near, the new Ian Potter Southbank Centre on the University of Melbourne’s Southbank campus. Our facilities on the University's Parkville campus, including Melba Hall, are also used for teaching, research and performances.
While studying at the Faculty, you will have the chance to benefit from a range of partnerships and engagement activities at major arts companies in Melbourne's Arts Precinct, local and national festivals and sister institutions around the world.
Situated in the heart of Melbourne's Arts Precinct, the Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts and Cultural Development provides exposure to contemporary Indigenous arts practices and supports the recruitment of Indigenous artists, academics and students.
