“To all who are passionately dedicated to the search for new “epiphanies” of beauty so that through their creative work as artists they may offer these as gifts to the world.”

Australian Catholic University (ACU) is a dynamic, modern Catholic university with a deep and abiding commitment to culture. Drawing on the long and rich heritage of the Catholic Church as a patron of the arts, we support and engage in a wide array of arts and cultural activities. These simultaneously reflect the University’s unique Catholic mission and vision while strengthening our identity as an ambitious and vibrant intellectual community.
In recent years, ACU has invested significantly in developing our reputation in arts and culture with several exciting new initiatives. For example, we have:
appointed our inaugural art curator to support the acquisition, cataloguing, display and conservation of the outstanding ACU Art Collection across our eight campuses
