Convocation of UWA Graduates
Convocation UWA’s centenary gift to The University of Western Australia is, as the major sponsor, the creation of a Shaun Tan sundial Hours to Sunset in Venetian glass mosaic tiles on the west-facing wall of The University Club.
The sundial celebrates the achievement of a world-renowned UWA graduate. Shaun Tan is the first graduate to win an Oscar. It is a gift that can be enjoyed by past graduates, current students and future graduates. It also celebrates an environment – created by the University and its graduates – that fosters creativity, endeavour, innovation and achievement.
The University and its graduates are, of course, forever linked. As a former Vice-Chancellor of the University has said:
The range of skills and accomplishments represented by our graduates exemplifies the breadth of the University itself, where we are fortunate to have leaders in every field of human endeavour.
Convocation UWA is very pleased and proud to be principal sponsor in the creation of the Shaun Tan mosaic.
