veski awards in design inspire summer school

21 September

After delivering her inaugural summer school with funding from the veski awards in design, world-renowned body architect Lucy McRae is talking with institutions around the world to replicate the concept she developed in Melbourne.

The inaugural summer school, which was supported by the veski awards in design and delivered at RMIT University, provided a fresh and pragmatic strategy that summoned a new direction in creative education. The concept is tipped to become 'The Lucy McRae School’.

Following her visit to Melbourne in July, Lucy wrote to veski with the following praise for the veski awards in design:

“I want to thank you for giving me, the students at RMIT and the many number of people involved in making this project such a wonderful opportunity to be part of a project that conquered unchartered territory and introduced a whole innovative way of learning, providing students with access to experience something not usually available at University level”.

She also said: “The innovation workshop brought together the elite and the talented to create a high octane, high energy atmosphere” and “The results have exceed initial expectations and the network of people involved, covers such a vast bandwidth, opening up major connections between students and industry on a local and international level”.

The summer school united RMIT architecture, fashion, media and interior design students with brands and the music industry, giving them the opportunity to work directly with industry professionals on a real project.

Lucy and 20 of RMIT University’s top design talent joined forces in an intense three-week collaboration to produce a music video for Rat Vs Possum’s ‘Let Music and Bodies Unite’, a dance-inspired party album.
