Melbourne Indigenous Transition School @ Swinburne for Marngo Design Workshop

Secondary students from Melbourne Indigenous Transition School have been given a glimpse into the world of university life through an Aboriginal art and design workshop hosted by Swinburne.

The Marngo Designing Futures (MDF) program was developed by Swinburne academic Dr Samantha Edwards-Vandenhoek to help demystify university life for Indigenous secondary students using art, design and media.

Funded through the Commonwealth Government’s Higher Education Participation Program, the program enables young Indigenous students to explore life at university though the creation of their own artwork and to learn about career paths in design.
