We contribute to development of the photo based arts in the ACT by letting people see, learn, make and show photography and other photo based art.
Seeing and showing—the HUW DAVIES GALLERY is open to the public 10–4 Tuesday to Friday and 12–4 on weekends with a full program of changing exhibitions. We encourage exhibition proposals from individual artists and present cutting edge, community based and annual members’ exhibitions, and exhibitions from the PhotoAccess Collection. Work shown in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY is generally for sale.
Learning—our courses and workshops are structured to meet a wide range of needs from beginners to experienced practitioners. They are highly regarded and constantly developing to provide expert and personal support to help people discover and improve their photo media skills. Our regular courses are offered week nights and on weekends, and we can arrange specialist courses at other times to suit your requirements.
Making—we are passionate about the photo based arts and believe everyone should share the wonder and satisfaction of creating images using all the possibilities of photo media. We encourage and share interesting and fresh approaches to the photo based arts through our exhibitions, artists in residence program, talks, publications and special projects.

Volunteers help us to keep our facilities open on weekends and in other ways. The benefits of volunteering include gallery minding experience and opportunities to learn and share stories and interests by interacting with other photographers.
Artists in residence
PhotoAccess makes an important contribution to the development of emerging artists by offering residency and access opportunities. We welcome residency proposals at any time.
We are happy to assist community groups with projects involving photography. We can help administer grant monies and provide discounts on the use of our facilities. Contact us to discuss your project and ways we might be able to help.
