Meet our alum
In 2019, the University of Melbourne gave 30 students and alumni their first commission, to celebrate the power of artistic minds and the launch of our redeveloped Southbank campus.
Alum Cindy Rodriguez (Master of Film and Television (Narrative) in 2018) explored The Great Petition: empower the powerless, with Monument of Words, an installation piece that explores the concept of walls and the prescribed divisions that are meant to neatly characterise race, nationalism, language, religion and personal experience
While alum Hannah Moore (Master of Film and Television (Narrative) in 2018) was inspired by Self Portrait with Monkeys: divulge an unattainable desire, with Free Fall, a moving picture of perpetual, low level angst, and what it would look like to shed that angst.
