As the leading national agency for photomedia and lens-based art, the Australian Centre for Photography (ACP) has reached a seminal point in time. Since 1973, artists working with ACP have led the progress of photography as a contemporary art form. Today, as one of the most accessible and ubiquitous forms of cultural expression, photomedia and lens-based art can benefit from the leadership and resilience ACP brings to the development of artists and audiences.
ACP’s exhibitions have played an important role in identifying and promoting the major artists of Australian photography as well as supporting new and emerging practitioners who have, over time, become known artists. ACP produced the first major retrospectives of photographers Max Dupain, Olive Cotton and Mervin Bishop, along with early exhibitions of works by Bill Henson, Tracey Moffatt, William Yang and Trent Parke.
The Australian Centre for Photography offers an extensive program of photographic experiences to passionate individuals keen to develop their skills and expertise. The education program includes beginner to specialist courses, seminars, workshops and demonstrations delivered by some of Australia’s leading photographers, photo-educators and digital imaging professionals.
ACP provides a wide variety of technical, practical and conceptual programs from beginners through to intermediate and advanced levels. ACP promotes a culture of creativity and fulfillment to its student community and has paved the way for the careers of many leading photographers and industry professionals.
