Stay connected with a valuable and diverse network of professionals growing the creative economy.


2021 marks the 20th anniversary of QUT becoming the world’s first university to establish a dedicated creative industries faculty. Now encompassing a rich tapestry of creative disciplines, many communities that form part of the Creative Industries Faculty have had the opportunity to celebrate a number of achievements and milestones over this time.

Centenary of Architecture

In 2019, we celebrated 100 years of teaching architecture on the site of QUT. The Centenary launched with the John Gollings: History of the Built World Exhibition. Industry guests, alumni and academic staff of the School of Design hosted a panel discussion about the future of architectural education later in the year. The year's celebrations closed with a Gala Dinner, inviting TV and radio presenter, comedian and passionate architecture and design advocate, Tim Ross, as a guest speaker.
