RSL Art Union

Course intake: 3 February 2020

RSL_ArtUnion_Logo-transparent

We have teamed up with RSL Art Union to offer you real world experience during the 12 week online UX program. Our client will be the RSL Art Union who provide much needed funds to returned veterans and their families in Australia. Returned veterans often find it difficult to reintegrate into mainstream society as a result of both physical injury and the harmful mental effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Through their Prize Home Lottery, the RSL Art Union delivers critical funding that supports returned veterans from recent conflict, as well as those on the long journey to recovery from past deployments, in the form counselling, financial aid, accommodation, rehabilitation and much more. Regardless of where you are located around the world, you will play a key role in working on a project to improve the digital experience in order to optimise fund raising efforts and ticket sales in order to support returned veterans and their families.

By the end of the 12 week program you'll have an impressive project portfolio demonstrating end-to-end UX design capability and the process you went through.
