President's Welcome


Molly Pritchard

Welcome to the Arts Union website!

My name is Molly Pritchard and I am your 2022 Arts Union President.


The Arts Union is the Faculty Society for University of Western Australia students studying a Bachelor of Arts and Arts majors. We are the peak representative body for arts students, acting as a key representative to the School of Humanities, the School of Social Sciences, and the UWA Student Guild Education Council. 

Established in 1944, the Arts Union has tirelessly served the needs of students, with the mission to improve their education and university life. As of 2021, this includes those studying under 31-degree specific majors, such as Political Science and International Relations, Criminology, European and Asian Languages, and many more!


UWA provides their students with a quality degree upon graduation, so at the Arts Union we want to supplement that world-class education and enhance the time students spend at UWA. As a not-for-profit, all finances generated are re-invested back into increasing the quantity and quality of activities and initiatives we provide for the benefit of Arts students.


Arts Union is divided into four portfolios in order to wholly represent all parts of student life: Education, Social, Equity and Externals. Our committee works all-year round on projects and events, including study nights, social events, volunteering initiatives, and internship opportunities, to create an exciting and beneficial student experience.


If you'd like to contribute to Arts Union's mission, feel free to get into contact with us so we can explore potential opportunities. Our prospectus is available on the sponsorship page. And if you're an Arts student at UWA looking to get involved, reach out to us on our Facebook page, sign up for a membership via the membership section at the top of the page, or come find us in the Arts Union Common Room in the arts building!


Hope to see you around soon,
