Hellos and Goodbyes in Australian tertiary arts Institutions

Each year brings new faces to Australia’s tertiary arts institutions and sadly farewells familiar colleagues who move on to new pastures. These are just a small selection sent by our institutions:

  • Alex Martinis Roe has relocated from Berlin to join ANU as Head of Sculpture, School of Art & Design
  • Jacqui Somerville joins Queensland Conservatorium to lead the development of the Bachelor of Acting bringing over 20 years of experience as an actor, theatre director, writer and producer
  • UNSW says farewell to retiring colleagues Wendy Parker (Jewellery), Dr Diane Losche (Art Theory), Associate Professor Bontia Ely (Sculpture Performance Installation) and Martin Sims (Sculpture Performance Installation) although they will remain with UNSW as Honorary staff members.
