UQ Arts

Connecting people and ideas, artists and audiences, students and opportunities.

Creating connections

Art connects. It connects us to our past, our present and our future. It connects us with bold ideas and challenging conversations. And it connects us to communities that help our conversations and ideas to develop.

UQ Arts connects you to creators, curators, scholars and publishers dedicated to capturing stories and ideas through creative expression.

It's where you can find teachers and resources to help you discover your future, and locate donors and other artists to collaborate on creative adventures.

Uncover the joy and wonder to be found in our museums, libraries, schools and art events.
