The QCA is a thriving community of artists, designers, photographers and creative thinkers
At the Queensland College of Art, we've built a strong, tight-knit creative community. We teach creative innovation and adaptability and are seeing the results of that as we adapt to the COVID-19 health emergency.
Our QCA students, staff and alumni continue to push creative boundaries and we are proud to showcase these stories, projects and exhibitions. We'll update this page regularly and encourage you to engage with us further through our social media channels.
Griffith University Art Museum
Griffith University Art Museum is custodian of the Griffith University Art Collection, a significant public art collection in Queensland. See what's on during this time, including online and interactive resources like artist talks, videos and podcasts; adult and children's workshops; education kits, publications and resources.
New online exhibitions
QCA Galleries are a facility of the Queensland College Art. Exhibitions, guest lectures and artist talks are programmed throughout the year. This online gallery space presents an opportunity for you to access exhibitions online. New exhibitions are added on a regular basis.
