The CQU Creates annual art exhibition was first held in 2014 and allows CQUniversity to connect with past and present students and staff and promote their unique artistic talents.


CQU Creates is a touring exhibition that visits and celebrates the regions within the University’s Central Queensland footprint.
CQUniversity students and staff (past and present) are invited to submit their entries for the annual exhibition on 31 May and 1 June 2019.
