Shades of Noir

Shades of Noir aims to tackle the issue of differential degree attainment between White Home students, home students of colour and students who pay fees at the overseas rate. Explore issues of Race and ethnicity in arts, design and communication higher education; Promote discussion and debate across the university community (and nationally and internationally); Support the development of pedagogical and assessment practice and curriculum that seek to narrow the degree attainment differential. Shades of Noir was created by Aisha Richards in 2009, and born from curiosity, research and experience. The program continues to develop, grow and be purposeful through the input and contributions of students, alumnus, staff, academia and industry. The term 'Shades' reflects the multiplicity of skin complexions, identities and shared experiences associated with the term 'Black' or 'Noir'; whilst also provoking thought around whether this is, can or should be a cohesive of homogenous term in the context of Diverse Arts.
