Ground Level

Are you an international student interested in exploring local art and culture, practicing conversational English, and meeting new people?

We would love to see you at NGV Language Exchange at the National Gallery of Victoria. Join educators at the Gallery each month for conversations about art and design from Australia and around the world, and creative artmaking activities.

All levels of English are welcome, and no prior art knowledge or experience is required. Sessions are free but bookings are essential.

In this session, the conversation will be inspired by interesting and unique stories of contemporary art and design on display in NGV Triennial. From a tiny talking mouse and robotic dogs to large-scale sculptures and immersive installations, there is so much to talk about in this The session also includes fun and social art making activities led by artist (and former international student) Scotty So.
