Minjerribah Arts Trail

18 September – 5 October 2020 (Friday to Monday) 

 

Yura (Hello). 

This spring, artists and makers across the island open their private studios, workshops and galleries to celebrate Minjerribah’s rich arts and cultural traditions and the vibrant local maker community. The Minjerribah Arts Trail will showcase more than 20 visual artists, weavers, ceramicists, jewellers, printmakers, photographers and sculptors in the island’s three villages: Gumpi (Dunwich), Pulan (Amity Point) and Mulumba (Point Lookout).

Held over three consecutive weekends (Friday-Monday), you can design your own arts trail experience. Meet the artists and makers, understand their inspirations and practices, take part in a workshop or just browse and buy in the galleries and studios.

Traditional Custodians, the Quandamooka People have cared for Minjerribah for more than 20,000 years. Today Quandamooka artists are reviving ancient traditions such as weaving, while creating contemporary works inspired by Country and culture. Country is also the muse for non-Indigenous artists who find solace and insight in the island’s dramatic landscapes and community connections.

The Minjerribah Arts Trail is an initiative of Minjerribah Futures, Queensland Department of State Development, Tourism and Innovation and is being delivered in partnership with Brisbane Economic Development Agency, Redland City Council, Tourism and Events Queensland, Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation, and the artists and makers of Minjerribah.

Finding your way:

Displayed in front of every Minjerribah Arts Trail venue you will find Quandamooka artist Libby Harward’s work "BAMBARA, 2020” (Pathway). These visual way-finding cues continue her use of symbology and exploration of the philosophy of re-connecting, re-mapping and re-contextualising, to highlight and reveal connections within the creative and cultural ecosystems that exist in each of the unique townships on Minjerribah.

Minjerribah Arts Trail venues are typically open 10am -2pm, Friday-Monday. Some venues that maintain opening hours Tuesday – Thursday (e.g. stores and galleries) will continue to do so. Opening hours will vary, please check with the venue.
