RMIT’s founding motto, ‘A skilled hand, a cultivated mind’ speaks to our commitment to creating inclusive cultural and social environments that reach beyond the classroom.

We create exhibitions, events and programs for the whole community that inspire creativity and collaboration.

We aim to inspire and engage our many audiences to discover new ideas and perspectives by exploring our cultural spaces, resources and collections.

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.

Public Engagement Group

The Public Engagement Group help facilitate an enterprise-wide approach to cultural engagement with a mission to enhance the visibility of RMIT’s extraordinary spaces, resources and collections.
