Arcadia

Arcadia is your ultimate guide to UNSW Art & Design. Whether you're looking for fierce fashion trends, exhibition reviews or emerging artists, we've got it all.

Arcadia is back in 2019 and better than ever.

If you're looking to get away from those 4-hour studio classes and need a good read at the student lounge, then look no further! Arcadia's got your back.

Want to get involved? If you're keen to interview an artist, review an exhibition, video a mural time-lapse, or produce any content material, then get in touch!

Pop into the Arc @ UNSW A&D office for IRL chats or email blitz@arc.unsw.edu.au
