Thinking Spaces

Thinking Spaces peels back the layers of time to celebrate moments and spaces of learning and inspiration on ANU campus. A series of night-time installations will feature large-scale projections on selected campus buildings every night from sunset. Drawing from archival documentaries, photographs and films shot on campus, these projections will celebrate the people and places that have helped shape the cultural and intellectual landscape that is The Australian National University.

When you visit the installations on campus use your mobile device to launch the website where you’ll have access to unique recordings and stories behind the installations


March 15 to 27 2013
Projections nightly from sunset. For event details and locations visit

Official launch
Outside the Menzies Library on Friday 15 March 2013 6-9pm featuring music and markets - bring a picnic and come and enjoy some sunset jazz. Everyone who shares their favourite ANU Thinking Spaces will receive a special treat and go into the draw to win some great prizes including an original Fred Ward desk and a $100 voucher for Boffins restaurant at University House.

Would you like to contribute? Do you have a favourite thinking space you’d like share?
Thinking Spaces invites past and present ANU students and staff to get involved in sharing your own thinking spaces. You might like to tell us a story or even share a photo of a particularly memorable moment of your life on campus. Or you might like to tell us what makes a great thinking space for you today. Contributions received by 4 March 2013 have the opportunity to be featured in the project.
