MADE by the Opera House Alumni

MADE BY THE OPERA HOUSE ALUMNI

Each year until 2023, five Australian (NSW) students and five Danish students will travel to Denmark and Australia respectively, forming a multidisciplinary team to collaborate on a six-week project aligned with the Utzon Design Principles.

Upon completion of the program, the students become part of the MADE by the Opera House Alumni group, acting as mentors to the future MADE students and helping to shape future MADE programs.

Below are the MADE by the Opera House students and alumni.
