Students from the Faculty of Arts and Design have been engaged in creating a new emblem or Coat of Arms for the Australian Capital Territory.


The Gallery

An Exhibition of the Student's Work

The gallery is a showcase of all the work that our students have done. It ranges from designs of Coat of Arms, to new and creative ways of introducing emblems, and even includes some poetic work!

The range of works truly encapsulates what makes the ACT a special place to be. By embodying 'Our People', the students were able to create designs that are able to encapsulate 'Our Symbols'. In order to show what 'Our Future' in the ACT could look like.

The Shortlist

The shortlist of the student's submitted designs.

From all the designs that were submitted by our students, a shortlist of the top fifteen was created. These creative works show a range of the different abilities and perspectives that our students were able to bring to both the project and to what a Coat of Arms will mean for Canberra.
