Arts and Education Annual Alumni NGV Event

Event details

The Faculty of Arts and Education is delighted to invite you to their annual alumni event at the Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia.

Enjoy private access to the remarkable photographic exhibition Civilization: The Way We Live Now, live music and canapés, while networking and reconnecting with Deakin.

Civilization: The Way We Live Now is an international photography exhibition of monumental scale, featuring the work of over 100 contemporary photographers.

The selected works create a picture of collective life around the world and document patterns of mass behaviour. The exhibition looks at the phenomenal complexity of life in the twenty-first century and reflects on the ways in which photographers have documented, and held a mirror up to the world around us.

Deakin is proud of its partnership with cultural icon the NGV and thrilled that this partnership can facilitate such an exclusively boutique event at a world class exhibition.

We are thrilled that Deakin Alumnus Carmel O’Keefe will present a short reflection on the exhibition.
Carmel O’Keeffe is Museums Victoria’s first General Manager of Digital Life - a dream role that sits at the convergence of museums, culture, technology and media.  With her team, Carmel is using her diverse experience as an ABC radio, TV and online journalist and editorial manager to reach and engage museum audiences in digital ways both within the walls and beyond. Carmel received the 2009 Roslyn Lawry award for excellence when she graduated from Deakin University’s Master of Cultural Heritage degree.  She also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Philosophy from Deakin University.

RSVPs are essential by Friday 27 September or until booked out. You are welcome to bring along one guest – please advise their name at the time of booking.

We look forward to welcoming you.
