University of Notre Dame Australia, Broome Campus
Since its inception as an educational campus for Kimberley communities, the University of Notre Dame’s campus in Broome has also been committed to collecting and exhibiting the art generated from their Kimberley parish communities. Many of the artists have since become internationally acclaimed. The UNDA art collection comprising paintings, drawings, sculpture, artefacts, prints and other items, is testament to the varied artistic skills of their community and to the emergence of a strong synchronicity between Catholicism and Aboriginal belief systems. The Painting the Future exhibition, along with cabinets of artefacts and artworks, are on permanent display in the foyer of the University library, whilst other items in the collection are held in an archive, and can be viewed on request.
