2020+ Graduating Season

It's been a year like no other at the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music, with COVID restrictions affecting every discipline and speciality. And yet, our students have excelled ...

Running from December 2020 to July 2021, our Graduating Season comprises more than 35 events, performances, showcases and exhibitions across screen, stage, music and the performing arts. Join us as we celebrate our final-year artists and musicians as they find new ways to innovate, interrogate and respond creatively to the changing world.

We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which our campus is situated, the people of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung, who have created art, made music and told their stories here for thousands of generations. We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.


As theatres went dark during 2020, the tradition of the ghostlight kept hopes for the return of live performance alive. To celebrate the power of this tradition the graduating company of VCA Music Theatre 2020 students, directed by Tyran Parke, created the video project, ‘Ghostlight’ at Melbourne’s iconic Regent Theatre.
