The first subject of its kind to come from partnerships between La Trobe University and MAMA has attracted students from as far as Perth.
Gabriella Raetz travelled from Melbourne to be one of 46 participants – including 10 members of the public –  in Exhibiting Culture: Marilyn.

“I’ve really loved the cross-disciplinary nature of it and I’ve also never been to Bendigo or Albury,” she said.

La Trobe University Humanities and Social Sciences senior lecturer, Dr Sue Gillett, said more exhibition-based subjects were in the pipeline after two successful trials before the Marilyn course.

“One of my aims is to get Melbourne students out to the regions,” she said.

“We’ll be teaching in relation to the Write Around the Murray writers festival in Albury in September, and we have plans for next year as well.”
