The Institute of Advanced Studies hosts free public lectures by prominent local, national and international speakers throughout the year.
Throughout the year we host regular masterclasses by leading Australian and visiting scholars who discuss their own research and broader topics of interest.
On the second Tuesday of every month, the IAS and Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery present a thought provoking topic from the world of arts and culture to be discussed by an expert UWA researcher, which is then opened to the audience for discussion.
The Institute of Advanced Studies enhances the research profile of the University through raising awareness of and encouraging debate on contemporary issues.
