Artsworx, the University of Southern Queensland’s creative services, academic support and event/ activity unit is under review, following on from the university’s academic restructure last year that saw the creation of separate schools of creative arts and humanities. The official consultation period is ongoing until April.
A university spokesperson confirmed: “The University of Southern Queensland is pleased to announce the new School of Creative Arts. The School presents further opportunities to focus on the academic programs, community engagement and activities in the Creative Arts. This is an exciting opportunity for the School of Creative Arts to continue its links with Arts practice and the University aims for research, teaching and learning, industry connection and community engagement. The USQ Artsworx program activities are proposed to be integrated into the new School. We have a proud and long history as a supporter of the Visual Arts, Theatre, Music, Film, Television and Radio disciplines. As the consultation process is still underway, we cannot make further comment as this time.”
