The Melbourne School of Design aims to grow our relationships with the Indigenous Australian community through our research projects, alumni networks and teaching offerings.
The Faculty is currently working on an exciting range of projects and research initiatives that aim to re-think our approach to collaborative-led design and building with Aboriginal communities, and alternative ways that indigenous landscapes can be thoughtfully experienced and managed.
