Slow TV meditations

Take a moment to relax, unwind or meditate with our on-campus Slow TV.

An antidote to the fast pace of modern life, Slow TV is an ideal way to enhance mindfulness and focus. It can also help you to relax while you study.

That’s why we sent a filmmaker to capture some of the most beautiful corners of our Parkville, Burnley and Southbank grounds.

Slow down with us – take the time to be transported to a new or beloved space on campus. Let us walk you through some of our favourite spots:

Burnley campus

Your day starts at the Burnley main campus, at 9.30am. There’s a gentle breeze, and the vines on the are turning autumnal crimson. The Burnley campus is located on Wurundjeri land and has greatly benefited from the histories of continuous connection and agricultural practice, dating back more than 60 000 years. The Burnley campus has been the University’s center for teaching and research in urban horticulture since 1891.

Friends Courtyard, Faculty of Fine Arts and Music, Southbank campus

It’s 10.00am at the University’s Southbank Campus, and you’re standing in the Friends Courtyard, between the Performing Arts and Music buildings. Normally you can hear the faint sounds of feet on boards, and musicians rehearsing amongst the trees. The University’s Southbank Campus is on the land of the Yalukit Willam clan of the Kulin nation, who have imbued this site with a rich history of performance and art making for generations.

Arts West, Parkville campus

It’s 3.00pm and you are now on our iconic Parkville campus. Stand amongst the eaves of the Arts West building, one of the newest buildings on campus, and imagine the honeycomb of classrooms, studios and lecture theatres spilling out onto Professor’s Walk.

The Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences, Parkville campus

At 4.00pm students of the Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences continue to envision a better world. Whether it be through more sustainable agricultural practices, food supply equity or managing your dog’s separation anxiety.

The Melbourne School of Design , Parkville campus

Finally, the day is winding up at the Melbourne School of Design. It’s 4.45pm, and the setting autumn sun is peeling back the layers of the School’s elegant sandstone fa├žade.

The University’s Parkville campus is on the land of the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung people. We recognise the unique place held by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the original custodians of the lands, and their contribution to knowledge-making practice in the University community.
