Congratulations to colleagues at UNSW Art and Design who have secured three ARC Linkage grants recently:  Professor Dennis Del Favero, will investigate an interactive spatial aesthetic for modelling operatic rehearsal design to optimise and streamline design processes in the performing arts industry; Dr Guy Keulemans, will generate new knowledge in design-based repair and reuse of consumer products to develop a new community of craft and design practitioners, audience and clientele; and Dr Prudence Gibson  will aesthetically redefine engagement with the plant collection at Royal Botanic Gardens Herbarium (RBG) Sydney and communicate its artistic, cultural and heritage value to the public through a public program of digital media arts events.

Congratulations also to Associate Professor Jennifer L. Biddle (Art & Design) and Professor Andrew Schultz (Arts & Social Sciences) who have been appointed to the Gough Whitlam and Malcolm Fraser Chair of Australian Studies at Harvard University for 2021–22.
