Get Involved

The School of the Arts & Media, in partnership with the UNSW Creative Practice Lab, has built strong relationships within the creative arts industry. We’re committed to our place in the arts and media communities; connecting students, supporting innovative practices, providing expertise and thought leadership, and contributing to public debate.  

We work with industry partners who offer expertise in specific disciplinary fields and access to popular artist networks. We work with our industry partners from artist development through to production and incorporate the artists’ process and outcomes into our teaching and research. Our industry partners connect directly with students through a comprehensive program of industry internships.  

Visiting artists form part of our school's vibrant creative environment. With our industry partners, we support artists through residencies, fellowships and research projects. These artists are generous and open to inviting researchers into their process, showing works-in-progress to students, participating in documentation and archiving processes and offering internship opportunities to students.

UNSW Creative Practice Lab (CPL) is a specialised arts unit within the School of the Arts & Media that supports teaching and practice-led research across a diverse range of disciplines. We manage the School's performance venues, rehearsal studios and technical resources.

UNSWriting brings together the flow of ideas and high calibre writing and connects writers, publishers and students through special events, workshops and public talks.

Live Crossings is an online open-access magazine of creative practice and live performance events supporting the work of refugee and Indigenous writers and performers.

Our venues and resources are managed by the UNSW Creative Practice Lab with the School of the Arts & Media office. Primarily for student and staff coursework and research, venues are also available to the Arts Industry for commercial hire.


There are a plethora of opportunities for all students at the School of the Arts & Media. 

Explore the possibilities from work learning experiences to exciting internships in performing arts, creative writing, film and much more.
