Have you checked out Newcastle’s annual art and design festival LOOK HEAR? Since its inception LOOK HEAR has hosted some of the finest and most reputable art and design practitioners in Australia who have shared their perspectives on industry, technique and process.

The University’s Conservatorium hosted the LOOK HEAR conference on Saturday, featuring an array of skilled and inspirational movers and shakers from contemporary art and design who shared their stories.

The official exhibition of the LOOK HEAR Art & Design Festival, LOOK SEE, returned this year to Watt Space gallery, the Uni’s student gallery. LOOK SEE showcased the best of contemporary creativity – from street art to illustration, fine art photography, to graphic design and typography.  

This festival is quickly establishing itself as one of Australia’s premier art and design events – and there’s still loads more to come. Check out the festival schedule.
