Event details

We are delighted to invite you to join us in celebrating 40 years of Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies (CHMS) at Deakin. Our course is the largest and the longest running course of its kind in Australia.

As a graduate of one of our programs this event also celebrates you and the contributions you have made since graduating!

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

The CHMS program provides the next generation of cultural heritage and museum professionals the skills to work with objects and collections, manage a museum or heritage building, or protect and interpret significant sites. The program provides hands-on, applicable experience, which students take forward with them into their future careers.

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.

RSVPs are essential by Friday 4 October 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.
