BLITZ | ARCADIA

Blitz | Arcadia is your guide to the Art & Design campus, from on campus fierce fashion to off campus exhibitions and emerging artists.

It's 2018 and Arcadia is back baby!

We hope you had the wonderful art-filled summer break you deserved! Semester has started - it's time to hit the library, relax in the student lounge, or crowd the Artscene store. This year Arcadia will be your lifeline.

Keep afloat by staying in touch with off campus antics, and on campus fanatics. We'll be sharing writing tips and studying tricks. Plus, sharing everything from experimental sounds and arts writing, to exhilarating exhibition reviews, insightful interviews and more.

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!

Email - Audrey Pfister UNSW A&D's Writers Co-ordinator at a.pfister@arc.unsw.edu.au or pop into the Arc @ UNSW A&D office for IRL chats!
