RMIT Culture unites the university’s public cultural spaces, creative programs and cultural collections, providing opportunities to engage creatively, as well as supporting RMIT’s learning and teaching activities, and disseminating its research.
There are many ways that the whole community, as well as RMIT staff, students, industry and research partners, can engage with RMIT Culture – including dynamic programs of exhibitions, conversations, performances and publications, film screenings, online resources, creative development and research opportunities.
Our teams manage the university’s collections and cultural programs including presenting a range of events at The Capitol and exhibitions at RMIT Gallery, RMIT Design Hub Gallery and First Site Gallery. RMIT Culture is also the custodian of RMIT’s Cultural Collections (RMIT Design Archives, AFI Research Collection and RMIT Art Collection). You can visit a City Campus Culture trail featuring publicly accessible works from the RMIT Art Collection. We also offer cultural residencies, grants and prizes to support the creative sector and emerging practitioners.
By showcasing and expanding RMIT’s cultural assets through new initiatives and vibrant partnered projects, RMIT Culture strengthens RMIT’s position as a leading university for enterprise, design and innovation.
We acknowledge the continuing culture of the Woi wurrung and Boon wurrung language groups of the eastern Kulin Nation and their contribution to the life and art of this city, including those whose works are represented in RMIT’s exhibitions, collections and cultural resources.
