From our team here at NGV, we’d like to express our very best wishes to our community at this time.

Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 and after following closely the State and Federal Government’s advice, we have extended the NGV’s temporary closure until 30 June.

If you have pre-purchased tickets for current exhibitions or upcoming programs, our team will be in contact with you shortly to arrange full refunds.

We encourage you to visit our website and follow #NGV EveryDay on social media for updates and daily inspiration.

We are very grateful for the loyalty and understanding of the NGV community and wish everyone well during this time.

“The joy of finding novelty through play is part of what makes us creative and innovative creatures, which is really important for our ability to adapt to a changing world.” — Dr. Stuart Brown, Founder of the National Institute of Play.

College of the Curious is an experimental obstacle course by Local Peoples applying multidisciplinary expertise and tools for creative thinking that can be missed in traditional education.

The obstacle course will explore students’ skills, attitudes and alternative thinking within a unique, learning landscape shaped for curiosity. Bring an open mind — Your ATARs and Uber rating won’t help you here.

To celebrate your graduation, be sure to join us for a drink for the Launch of Matters Journal Issue Four. Spots are limited, sign up today!

College Of The Curious is the first iteration of Local Peoples independent research project: ‘The Future Of Learning’.

The event is one of three exciting initiatives hosted by Local Peoples on March 14th, along with 100 Jobs of the Future and the Matters Journal Issue Four Launch.

Local Peoples recognise and pay our deepest respect to the Wurundjeri, Bunurong and Wathaurong peoples of the Kulin Nation
