BE—150 Gala celebrates ABP community
The pinnacle of our year-long celebration of 150 years of built environment education at the University, the BE—150 Gala was held at the National Gallery of Victoria on October 1.
Attended by more than 340 alumni, current and former staff, students and friends of the Faculty the event attracted guests from interstate and abroad. Master of Ceremonies, Tim Ross, presided over the formal proceedings including a welcome address by the Vice Chancellor, Professor Duncan Maskell, and a keynote address by Faculty Dean, Professor Julie Willis.
Faculty alumni featured prominently in the evening’s entertainment which included a performance by classical duet Anon., a routine by Sue Ingleton and music by the Reverend Funk and the Horns of Salvation. Guests were also treated to the opportunity to select items from the BE—150 gift range.
In somewhat of a rarity, the event was also brought together six Deans of the Faculty including Julie Willis and former Deans Daryl Le Grew, Tom Kvan, Ruth Fincher, Ross King and John Scrivener.
