The Cultural Precinct oversees exhibition programs and collaborates on music, theatre, publishing and broader arts and cultural events that take place throughout the year at UWA. It manages the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery and the three major cultural collections: The Berndt Museum, The Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art and the University of Western Australia Art Collection, while overseeing the sculptures, murals and artworks installed around the grounds and in major buildings on the Crawley campus. 

Conceived as a ‘park with buildings’, UWA is arguably one of the most beautiful campuses in Australia. Sited throughout its heritage-listed gardens are many sculptures, murals and notable buildings, including the Octagon & Dolphin theatres, the Sunken Garden, Somerville Auditorium and the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery. This fusion of culture, nature and learning provides visitors with an experience unique in Western Australia.
