The Australian Centre for Photography

The ACP is the leading institution in Australia dedicated to the art of photography and photo media. Since 1974, the ACP has been a creative force in the cultural life of Australia, presenting the work of our most dynamic and diverse artists.

The ACP holds at its core the vital contribution of artists and photographers in distilling and reflecting upon society, displaying a pluralism of perspectives and a breadth of artistic practice. Our exhibitions, education and community programs provide opportunities for audiences and peers to engage in a dynamic conversation about the significance of images, both past and present, within contemporary culture.

During 2016, the ACP embarked on an exciting transition to become a more agile and responsive organisation that actively courts new creative partnerships and avenues for audience engagement both from within and outside the traditional infrastructure for art. This transitional phase has been strongly focused on refining, and redefining, how we operate as a cultural leader within multiple communities and different contexts.
