A Letter from the Sydney College of the Arts

An update on the Sydney College of the Arts situation from Professor Stephen Garton, Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sydney.

Dear Art Association of Australia and New Zealand,

Thank you for your previous interest in SCA. As a representative of the Visual Arts community who provided feedback on the developments at SCA, we wanted to share key details of the final change plan with you.

Today we released the Final Change Plan (FCP) to staff. In this document we outline the following changes:

  • The high-level plan for relocation in 2019 to the Camperdown/Darlington Campus (the Old Teachers College), including the retention of necessary facilities for all current disciplines
  • The proposed organisational structure as a department in the School of Literature, Art and Media (SLAM) within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS)
  • The creation of a formal external engagement mechanism between the faculty and the arts community
  • Ongoing roles for specialist visual arts Academic, Technical and Professional staff

Thank you again for your interest in the future of SCA.

Stephen Garton
