Discover the wonders of learning in unconventional ways through a series of mind-expanding interactive events in Footscray.

Learning on the Edge is an inaugural two-day program developed by VU's Footscray University Town team in collaboration with Victoria University Polytechnic, Maribyrnong City Council and community partners. It offers unique learning and knowledge-exchange opportunities for everyone.

Featuring six unique events at locations across Footscray, Learning on the Edge puts a twist on everyday learning experiences by encouraging participants to get out of their comfort zones.

- Watch a debate unfold between ABC radio broadcaster Sami Shah and local secondary-school students.

- See life in Footscray through scientists’ eyes with Triple R’s Einstein A Go Go host Dr Shane Huntington, and a panel of VU academics.

- Have a one-on-one conversation with renowned international street artist Heesco, authors Anna Krien (Night Games) and Enza Gandolfo (The Bridge), Michael Smith, the owner of the Sun Theatre and 2016 Australian Geographic Adventurer of the Year, or Sudanese-Australian former refugee Akuol Garang.

- Discover the traditions behind Footscray’s famous food scene in a special two-course meal at an Ethiopian, Sudanese or Vietnamese restaurant.

- Find out what happens when you meet someone new without seeing them: have a conversation with a stranger in the dark.

- VU’s Nicholson Street Campus will be transformed into a Skills Street, featuring immersive Skunk Control installations. Participants can learn something new in 60 minutes from 4D printing or spinning records with a DJ, reupholstering furniture or repurposing left over kitchen products into skin care products, finessing a work out routine whilst viewing Footscray’s famous street art or creating a lunchbox to improve mood. Fans of ‘big bangs’ will get a kick out of Skunk Control’s science show with a difference, where all rules are broken.

Learning on the Edge is an exciting educational program packed with unconventional learning experiences, for everyone.
