Art has the potential to bridge our worlds, harness the wisdom of our different views, engage our imagination to explore new ways of thinking, and create experiences that can be shared by all people in our community.

A scene to believe in

From yarn to reality, the stunning mural on Bush Court was created through allyship and consultation between Murdoch staff, students and talented artist, Jarni McGuire.
