Object Design: University Connections Program (UCP)

30 September 2023 – 28 October 2023
Upper Gallery

This exhibition showcases selected works from senior secondary students across Tasmania studying Object Design as part of the University Connections Program (UCP). 

Object design is about affording students a space to test ideas, stepping outside the known and exploring the many contributions design makes in improving the way we live. In 2023 students have been asked to respond to the theme Place. The exhibition features selected projects that explore the notion of Place from a range of perspectives, including sustainability, cultural heritage, community, built and natural environments, the body and more.

The University Connections Program provides year 11 & 12 a unique opportunity to undertake introductory university units. The Program is offered in partnership between the University of Tasmania, Tasmanian Schools and the Office of Tasmanian Assessment Standards and Certification (TASC).



Exhibition Opening:

Please join us at the Gallery to officially open the 2023 Object Design exhibition on Friday 29 September at 6.00pm, with special guest Dr. Sabine Pagan, Coordinator and Lecturer Object Design, University Connections Program (UCP).

This is a free event but RSVP is appreciated to the Gallery by email to artgallery@devonport.tas.gov.au
