Burgovision and Zoom debating - Semester 2 Arts Update

There we were, hundreds of ressies filling the sidebar squares of a Zoom call as the main screen showed a group of 2H inhabitants dancing to a parody of Mamma Mia, singing, “Quarantine/Here we go again…” It was a strange and wonderful semester for the arts, with Burgmann’s endless capacity do adapt and find the fun in any situation shining through.

Lucy Coote shares her experience of the Burgmann Alumni & Friends Mentoring (BAM) Program

I’m in my third year of a Business Administration degree at ANU, majoring in Management and minoring in International Business. I’m a very organised person and have always been interested in the administration side of business. This degree was ideal, as it allowed me to complete courses that would form part of a Commerce degree whilst also specialising with a greater administration and management focus.


Announcing inaugural First Nations Arts Initiative acquisitions

By Amelia Zaraftis

The representation and celebration of First Nations arts and cultures is important at Burgmann College, as we seek to reflect the deep histories, diverse cultures and ongoing truths of Australia.

In 2020, the College established the First Nations Arts Initiative as a core element of our Reconciliation Action Plan. Our ambition was to purchase significant works of art which would become the inaugural acquisitions in a growing collection of works by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.
