The world needs humanity
A designer can show us surprising new perspectives, an animator can find ways to connect people from all around the world, and a photographer can show us the reality of communities and cultures we may not even be aware of.
Great design enhances our homes and our work, and the way we engage and connect with the world around us.

Whenever there’s change, art and design are at the forefront
Hear from a Curtin graduate how their experience shaped their future. Curtin is your avenue to making change.
Marcus Wong, Bachelor of Arts (Screen Arts and Creative Advertising and Graphic Design)
“For me, art has always been more than just personal expression, but as a form of communal expression for a cultural moment. Whenever there’s change, art and design are at the forefront of that movement. And that inspired me to use the art and design skills that I learned at Curtin for activism and to be a voice for those whose voices are unheard.”
Through the John Curtin Undergraduate Scholarship, I had the opportunity to volunteer for three months in Uganda. This involved volunteering as a media consultant, shooting documentaries and taking photos to raise funds and awareness for an international NGO. This work experience acted as the springboard for my career in humanitarian media work by building a portfolio which increased my employability in this industry.”
