A curious traveller

Acclaimed painter and printmaker Guy Warren AM believes that creativity is in everyone – it’s just a matter of thinking outside the box and trying something different.

A dream come true

"Getting up and running in a high pressure, high expectations environments on the other side of the world was like climbing a mountain."

Culture in transit

When it comes to international influences for his work, Dr Laurens Tan has it covered; few other artists consider themselves concurrently a local in Las Vegas, Beijing and Wollongong.

Shifting perspectives

As the world continues to open up and boundaries become more fluid, the notion of identity becomes ever more complex.

Former University of Wollongong Vice-Chancellor Emeritus Professor Ken McKinnon AO and his wife Suzanne Walker have gifted more than $1 million to UOW for a fund that fosters innovation and supports excellence.
