The Discovery walls in Lismore and the Gold Coast are windows to the University and its community, exhibiting a wide range of video, animation and photographic works.
The content on the walls are creative expressions of the themes ‘heads, hearts and lands’ (our scholarship, our students and our region) which is communicated through various multimedia productions.
The productions span across multiple screens in portrait composition at Lismore and landscape composition at the Gold Coast.
The technical specifications of the Discovery walls can be found in the Discovery Wall guidelines & specifications for content & creation .

In early 2018 Guido van Helten was invited to create a mural at the Gold Coast campus where he studied a Bachelor of Visual Arts from 2006-2008 majoring in printmaking and design. These years formed a bridge between his traditional graffiti background and his current approach to art and mural-making.

Book jackets are more than just dust covers, they create a first impression. A successful book cover needs to make a reader 'feel' the manuscript rather than 'tell' about it. This Discovery wall presentation is a collage of book jackets from new books in our collection.
