Your critical arts journal

Framework is Arc @ UNSW Art & Design's critical arts and literary journal, which aims to facilitate, promote, and celebrate expanded forms of arts writing and critical dialogue around our campus.

Students work closely with the Writer's Coordinator to edit and develop their writing, which is published once a term, in week nine. Framework publishes a mix of experimental and more conventional reviews, interviews, essays and articles, as well as creative, visual and experimental texts. Framework is published online as a fixed layout epub and PDF, which means that contributors have the freedom to include interactive media such as videos, audio, gifs and animation in their writing.
