FAD Research Festival
The Faculty of Arts & Design at the University of Canberra provides a vibrant research culture in the fields of Arts, Humanities, Design, Communication, Architecture and Built Environment. We offer undergraduate, honours, and postgraduate levels across all our disciplines.
The Faculty is the home of two globally recognised research centres – Centre for Creative & Cultural Research and News & Media Research Centre – and a multidisciplinary research group – Built Environment Research & Innovation Group.
Our second annual FAD Research Festival 2020 will showcase the state-of-the-art research that our researchers and higher degree of research students are conducting, through online presentations and workshops. Event information can be found further below.

HDR Event - Rethinking & Reimagining Research during a pandemic - 'HDR Moments'
2020 is a year that has challenged our usual routines and disrupted the way we live, work, study and research! While the ongoing ambiguity of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, many of us faced challenges on many fronts and responded in the most natural way – because nobody is immune to a global pandemic, and the defining moments of sustained stress!
Continuing our tradition on ‘HDR Moments’, FAD HDR students were warmly invited to submit a write-up/statement (no more than 150 words) sharing their stories/moments during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Voting will be open from 12am (AEDT) Monday 9 November 2020 to 12pm (AEDT) Friday 13 November 2020.
Winners will be announced at the end of the final HDR seminar on Friday 13 November 2020.
Invite your family and friends to vote for their favourite 'HDR Moment', and show your support to our FAD HDR community!
