Shaping our future cultural heritage: Tertiary arts graduates and alumni
Australia’s leading arts practitioners increasingly hold undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications from our tertiary institutions. Tertiary arts graduates and alumni are pushing the boundaries of cultural understanding and shaping how we will all experience and enjoy art now and in the future. How has their educational experience helped them in their professional arts career? As educators, how do we shape our student experiences to meet the challenges ahead? And how do we then make sure that creative arts schools maintain connections with alumni to bring their experiences back into the education of the new generation of arts students?
In this edition of NiTRO, we present just a small selection to showcase how our graduates and alumni are shaping our cultural and artistic landscape and we explore how tertiary arts programs, schools and institutions are helping to ensure that they reach their potential as cultural entrepreneurs.

Creative arts disciplines make up a significant component of the university staff and student population, yet we lack a vehicle to share common experiences and issues.
NiTRO provides a platform for creative artists practicing in academia to contribute to informed discussion about issues and activities relating to practice, research and teaching taking place within the university sector.
With details of events, conferences, research resources, and articles from guest contributors and creative artists working in DDCA member institutions, subscribing to NiTRO keeps you up to date with the what, why and when of university based creative arts.
Subscription is free and open to artists, educators, policymakers, and anyone interested in creative arts research and tertiary education.
