QCA Live

Join a vibrant and innovative community of creative thinkers

QCA Live is the central hub breaking new ground by offering you platforms to redirect, challenge and rethink your creative potential.

Tracks cover all Queensland College of Art interest areas and connect with other disciplines offering studio courses, work-integrated learning, professional development, real world projects, industry engagement, and mobility opportunities. Respond to rapidly shifting social, cultural and professional environments in which workforces go global and seek creative thinkers. Open to all Griffith students and the wider public.
