PhotoAccess is a unique space for making, sharing and discovering creative photography and photo-based art. We’re a place where local, interstate and overseas artists, curators and audiences gather to explore how contemporary image-making shapes our world.
PhotoAccess is home to the only publicly-accessible darkroom in the ACT and wider NSW region and supports and encourages the development of contemporary darkroom practice.
Located at the Manuka Arts Centre, PhotoAccess is a non-profit, member-based organisation. Each year, we present a dynamic program of exhibitions featuring emerging and established photographers and photo-artists, together with accessible public talks, events and performances and artist residencies that foster critical debate about, understanding of and engagement with image practice.
