Learn more about Nuro Start playing

At La Trobe University, we love bold ideas that push the boundaries and tackle the big issues of our time – and we believe that the arts are the perfect platform for these ideas. We recognised these values in the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV), so we’ve been working together since 2013 to provide opportunities for our students, staff and community to explore and learn in a whole new way. In summer 2020/2021, we’re continuing this tradition with the ground-breaking NGV Triennial.
