Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Umbrella is a leading independent platform for contemporary and experimental arts practice operating on Wulgurukaba and Bindal Country (Townsville, North Queensland).

They have a four-decade legacy of bringing art and audiences together. They amplify critical and creative voices, support communities, incubate creativity and collaboration, and advocate for new models and investment in the arts.

They believe in the power of commune, bringing together diverse voices and perspectives of the region and beyond. In dialogue, through creative arts practices, they transgress traditional hierarchies of centre and periphery, which are place-based. They nourish curiosity, exploration, and more profound experiences with the region and all its peoples. They acknowledge the beauty of the in-between spaces. They invite partnership and collaboration to create encounters and meaning in a complex world.

Umbrella runs an annual program of onsite and touring exhibitions, public programs, arts residencies, studio access, professional development programs, special events and a biannual festival, Pop Up North Queensland (PUNQ). Umbrella is integral to our region’s thriving culture and creative economy.

Please see Umbrella’s website for public holiday and exhibition install closures.
