At the core of this organisation is the need to cherish the valuable contributions made by artists and photographers in their different fields. To achieve this, ACP holds regular exhibitions and programs that involve the community.
ACP is home to four gallery spaces that are dedicated to showcasing innovative photography work by both local and global photographers. ACP has been home to many popular exhibitions including ‘The Presidents: From JFK to Obama’, which gave visitors an opportunity to enjoy iconic images of America’s presidents in the last five decades.
‘Building the Sydney Harbour Bridge‘ showcased the progress made in constructing one of the country’s most iconic landmarks. Other exhibitions held in the past include ‘Life’s a Beach’, ‘Cabramatta’ and ‘Under the Sun: Reimagining Max Dupain’s Sunbaker’.
In addition to the exhibitions, ACP also holds photography talks all year round in addition to a host of special events and photography workshops. For budding photographers, this centre is a resourceful destination as it runs regular courses throughout the year.
