Perspectives on creative arts in higher education

Art Prize

In November entries will open for the second Footscray Art Prize … a biennial event that rewards local and national artists, whilst seeking to contribute to Footscray’s reputation as one of Melbourne’s booming artistic and cultural areas.

RMIT PhD student Mohsen Meysami has won the tertiary Footscray Art Prize for his work ‘Their Pain, Our Gain’ an embroidered work informed by traditional Persian art and the current Middle East conflict. The Footscray Art Prize is a collaboration between Victoria University, Maribyrnong City Council, Footscray Community Arts Centre
