Celebrating Canberra’s 100th, and their own 45th birthday, UC has installed a forest of cardboard cutout people onto their concourse. I grabbed some photos during the launch of the exhibition today.
Dozens of figures have been created by members of the University community, including children from its early childhood centre (who will attend the launch), students from UC High School Kaleen and the University itself, as well staff and alumni.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Stephen Parker will launch the exhibition, joined by representatives of the University’s Wiradjuri Early Childhood Centre and Ngunnawal Indigenous Higher Education Centre.
The UCPeoplescape exhibition is designed to recognise those individuals who have defined the life and substance of the University – the heroes, quiet achievers, advocates and supporters among the students, academics, alumni and members of the public.
Professor Jones was in attendance.
So was a green-suited man with cubes for a face.
The people of UC seemed to be undisturbed by the paper-man invasion.
It’s a bit out of the way, but if you happen to be at UC perhaps you should go have a look. It was pretty cool.
