Section Editors: Maggie McCormick and Fiona Hillary, RMIT University, Australia

RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, is a leader in public art, public and social practice by taking a multidisciplinary approach to creative practice that engages critically with contemporary urban culture. The MAPS Master of Arts (Art in Public Space) program engages with practice based creative arts inquiry to explore key issues confronting global public environments. By making connections between theory, art practice and everyday life the program engages with issues central to international cultural, political and social debates and recognises the important role public space plays as a forum for these exchanges.
