Creating a rich history

Kaurna Building City West campus

UniSA Creative is established upon the traditions of innovation, experimentation and quality of its three antecedent institutions to form a creative hub of teaching and research with strong links to industry and community.

The South Australian School of Art (SASA) is one of the oldest art schools in Australia, with its origins extending to the Adelaide School of Arts (1856). UniSA Creative’s Anne and Gordon Samstag Museum of Art and South Australian School of Art Gallery (SASA Gallery) continue as vibrant and living legacies of the South Australian School of Art.

The Louis Laybourne Smith School of Architecture and Design was named for the late South Australian architect and educator who in 1906 established one of the first architectural courses at the South Australian School of Mines, formed in 1889, later to become the South Australian Institute of Technology (SAIT). Through its history, the expansion of the School's programs embraced all major skills relevant to the built environment including Town Planning (the first course of its kind in Australia), Building Technology, Interior Design and Landscape Architecture.

In 1991, the South Australian Institute of Technology and the South Australian College of Advanced Education merged to form the University of South Australia. The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences which included the School of Communication and Information Studies and the School of Arts, Community Development and International Studies were among the Faculties and Schools that comprised the new University. Over time, creative discipline areas developed and strengthened to form the School of Communication, International Studies and Languages which later became the School  of Creative Industries. 

Today, UniSA Creative comprises one of the most comprehensive groupings of creative programs and research concentrations in Australia, delivering teaching programs and undertaking research from its two campuses at City West and Magill.
