Greer Harris - Thumb

Grad student selected to exhibit work at PICA

Creative Arts grad Greer Harris has been chosen to exhibit her artwork at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA). Greer was picked as one of only 35 graduates from art schools around Australia to display her work in the annual graduate show, ‘Hatched’.

Hatched, now in its 26th year, features work by recent graduates of the highest calibre from over 20 tertiary institutions around Australia. Students are nominated by their institution with an industry selection panel making the final choice.

The show not only puts a spotlight on the nation’s emerging art practices, but is also an important platform for the artistic careers of the grad students featured.

The exhibition will run at PICA from 6 May – 18 June. More information on the exhibition and a full list of the featured artists can be found on the PICA website.

Madelaine Dickie - Thumb

Young author’s debut novel inspired by magic of Indonesia

Creative Writing and Journalism graduate Madelaine Dickie has released her debut novel Troppo.   

It is a story of black magic, big waves and crazy expats, Madelaine said, a story that allowed her to combine her love of travel and her love of writing. 

Although it took Madelaine the best part of a decade to write, she described the process as a “compulsion”, which propelled her through numerous rewrites and juggling the writing process with full time work.
