RMIT, NOLA and the Metro Tunnel Creative Program is the collaboration trio we were all waiting for!

On Wednesday 8 March at RMIT A’Beckett Urban Square, we brought in the 2023 university year and hosted the ultimate block party.

The event featured a DJ zone with live performances from emerging artists and activities including table tennis and cornhole for folks to try their best shot at (pun intended). Performers roamed the square and there was an opportunity to show off your creative flair with a NOLA-inspired interactive artwork.

Plenty of delicious free food and giveaways were available on the day thanks to the wonderful local businesses in the NOLA precinct!
