    Situated in the Faculty of Culture + Community, the Foundation program provides a wide range of academic and studio-based courses in material practice, visual literacy and critical and conceptual thinking. Our curriculum also encourages student participation in local and global communities and culture through research and studio practice.

    In Foundation year students are encouraged to improvise and experiment with new ideas, processes and materials. This provides an introduction to imaginative thinking and creative experiences across a variety of mediums and disciplines while preparing students for future studies.

    The Foundation exhibition is a culmination of student progress shown through the work completed during their year of studies.

    IF'14, More-Than-Human Worlds combines interdisciplinary academic research with explorations in new media and design practice to consider alternative conceptions of human relations with other animals and the environment. The inquiry calls upon methodologies within environmental studies, philosophy, Eastern beliefs, First Nations’ mythologies, critical animal studies, culture studies, and art and design practices using new technologies and interactive modes, to propose approaches towards improved human awareness about and relationships with more-than-human worlds.
