We work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to empower voice through art.
Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts and Cultural Development
For over 15 years, the Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts and Cultural Development has connected Indigenous visual, design and performing artists with a pathway to their future in the arts.
About the Wilin Centre
The Wilin Centre works with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to identify, recruit and support potential and practicing Indigenous artists to study and refine their academic and artistic skills at the Faculty of the Victorian College of the Arts and the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music at The University of Melbourne.
Situated at the heart of Melbourne's Arts Precinct, the Wilin Centre fosters innovation in the research, development, advocacy and presentation of Indigenous arts and cultural practice.
What we do
We support Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people who are interested in studying Fine Arts and Music.
Our vision is to centre Indigenous philosophies of practice in the academy and society through arts practice, arts research, research training and partnerships.
Indigenous Arts and Culture is available as part of the Master of Fine Arts, a degree which offers the opportunity to contribute to understandings of contemporary artistic practice and theories of arts and culture.
Indigenous breadth subjects include Ancient and Contemporary Indigenous Arts, where the Wilin takes University of Melbourne students out on Country.
