UNSW Creative Practice Lab (CPL) is a specialised arts unit within the School of the Arts and Media (SAM) 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.
CPL staff members are industry professionals, technical magicians, filmmakers, producers, sound-makers and production designers. We work closely with students, researchers and artists to develop new work, and we holda range of inspiring events throughout the year.
What help is available?
We have resources and information in all areas of production for live performance and screen arts. There are many performance and rehearsal spaces attached to the school as well as costumes, set, props and equipment that you may find useful.
You can use any of our performance venues for filming; however, you will need to do book ahead as they are very popular. There are also rehearsal studios on the third floor of Webster, as well as two Dance Studios situated behind Io Myers Studio. Find out more about Venues and Hire.
The CPL team support the creative practices in the School of the Arts and Media. The many facets of the CPL's work include: producing, supporting and instructing in the development of performance and cross-media works; operating and maintaining resources and facilities and linking the University with the professional creative industries.
