Cate recently gave an inspiring speech while accepting an honorary doctorate degree at Macquarie University in Sydney. Watch the video below!

“The arts are what we stay alive for, what we work for all week, what we dream about, what connects us and indeed, what some will say makes us human. Within this broad church is housed a myriad of professions — professions which some of you will participate in, help change, shape and evolve and I’d like to say today that it is the arts that have always been the driver of innovation and exploration,” Cate shared.

She added, “A culture that supports change, adaptation and experimentation is the only way that a scientist can find the mental space to explore and innovate. So remember when someone asks: ‘what the hell can you do with an arts degree?’, ask them ‘what can the world do without one?”
