Recent partner events

The Sir Zelman Cowen Centre recently ran a special event at the Malthouse Theatre for friends, alumni and supporters of the Centre’s work in law and cultural diversity.

Osamah Sami’s play ‘Good Muslim Boy’ was the perfect opportunity to bring our industry and community partners together for some ‘deep engagement’ with the trials and tribulations of being an outsider in another culture.

Victoria University is proud to have a partnership with the Malthouse Theatre.
