Chinatown sojourn

Teachers and professors from undergrad and postgrad Media, Journalism and Cinema Studies took some time away from semester prep to enjoy lunch in Melbourne’s Chinatown, supporting local businesses who are doing it a little tougher than normal in the last week of summer.

Teachers who lunch!
