School of Media, Arts and Sciences (SMAS)


Interactive Art.


Vision

The creative arts push the realms of what is known, challenge the limits of our imagination and reveal to us the essence of what it means to be human. Works of media and art offer infinite modes of communication for communities and people across time and space. The School of Media, Arts and Sciences nurtures these conversations through creative expression that can emerge within and at the intersticies of diverse disciplines, mediums and practices.

Values

  • Support the development of critical thinking and social consciousness in the next generation of artists and communicators.
  • Help develop one’s voice as an artist through one's practice, encouraging interactions with the creative and cultural industries, and building an awareness of issues at large.
  • Provide a platform for the sharing of knowledge of the self and others, cutting across realms of practice - from the traditional, classical, to the popular or contemporary and more.
