In 2015 Public Relations Event’s Management staff trialled a new idea of having a four-day festival, giving each of the eight tutorial groups an opportunity to host their own event.

This year, students needed to conceptualise, plan, organise, manage and evaluate a gallery of Swinburne photos and graphic art. The ‘Gallery’ was open from Monday 11 May until Thursday 14 May. Each tutorial group formed their own event’s team and held a three hour open-gallery event on one of these days. The open galleries included many creative and exciting functions, with students combining art with cooking, fund-raising and marketing.

Some of the Gallery display pieces were stunning, and the event may have launched the careers of some the fledgling artists who made contributions.

Special thanks goes to our sessional tutor, Dr Kelly Cassidy, for the exceptional work she put into the event.
