Cultivating Creative Capital | Te Tini a Ahurea | Atina’eina o tamāo’aiga fa’avae
Victoria has a rich tradition and history of staff and student creativity. We understand that creativity, creative literacy and unfettered imagination make vital contributions to New Zealand society.
Those leading Victoria’s commitment to cultivating creative capital are people with diverse expertise and a commitment to imagination, innovation and risk-taking.
We are focused on understanding how a wide range of people and groups imagine cultivating creative capital and exploring the potential to partner with Wellington communities and businesses on creative collaborations.
Victoria is New Zealand’s leading research university for all aspects of creative exploration in areas ranging from architecture and design and education to creative writing, science history and languages and cultures.
