Festival of Autonomy 2014
This year, the historical (and crazy) Festival of Autonomy celebrations happen from Monday 4 August, culminating in the Festival of Autonomy Party of Friday, 8 August.
History says it was the 1st day of January 1965 that the illustrious University of Newcastle was declared autonomous from its forbearer, the University of New South Wales as decreed by the Governor of New South Wales, Sir Eric Winslow Woodward and since that fateful day, students at UoN have celebrated the Uni’s independence Semester 2 of each year.
2014 will be no different. Stay tuned to find out how you can join us in celebrating the Festival of Autonomy at UoN from inflatable fun, to billycarts and photo exhibitions.
