Engagement and Training Officer

UQ Art Museum

A key aim of the University of Queensland Art Museum (UQ Art Museum) is to foster critical enquiry, enjoyment and appreciation of art and visual culture. We aim to stimulate debate and dialogue across all UQ disciplines, to encourage participation by diverse audiences, and to enhance the campus experience of UQ students. We are committed to providing UQ students with professional skills and practical training in art museum management.

UQ Art Museum aims to build on its identity as a place for progressive and contemporary creative inquiry. Launching in mid-2019, a new research arc for the museum places learning at the core of our activities, with a program that engages with new knowledge and interpretations.

UQ Art Museum is located in the James and Mary Emelia Mayne Centre on The University of Queensland’s St Lucia campus, and is recognised as one of the nation’s most significant university art museums. Through a range of exhibitions, creative projects and public events, UQ Art Museum seeks to engage with the University and broader community.
