Indigenous Arts and Culture

For more than 15 years the Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts and Cultural Development has connected Indigenous visual and performing artists and designers with pathways to their future in the arts.

We offer a Master of Fine Arts in Indigenous Arts and Culture. You will undertake independent research and develop advanced skills in Indigenous arts and culture. In this multidisciplinary course, students’ creative works can take the form of performances, writing, film, video and multimedia (cultural or otherwise). You will be supported by a supervisor and create a final thesis which can be a combination of a major project and dissertation.
