Ian Potter Museum Of Art Miegunyah Student Project Award 2018

The Ian Potter Museum of Art is offering six competitive Awards of $1500 each to University of Melbourne students across all disciplines, for small projects focused on The Russell and Mab Grimwade ‘Miegunyah’ Collection.

The Ian Potter Museum of Art Miegunyah Student Project Award scheme aims to give students experience in working in an interdisciplinary context with a significant and extensive material and visual culture collection. In recognition of the changing face of academic engagement these projects also give students the opportunity to think about how to share their research with a range of audiences and to make use of multiple modes of distribution.

Applications are now open for University of Melbourne students at any level, currently enrolled at the University of Melbourne at least until end October 2018. Projects will be undertaken during the 2018 Academic Year. Applications close 6 July 2018.

For full details of the application process, creative brief, outcomes and resources, please refer to the Ian Potter Museum of Art website. Queries can be addressed to Dr Kyla McFarlane, Curator of Academic Programs (Research), Ian Potter Museum of Art: mcfarlanek@unimelb.edu.au.
