Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts is an independent platform for contemporary and experimental arts practice operating on Wulgurukaba and Bindal Country (Townsville, North Queensland). Umbrella was established in 1986 as a working studio and artist-run initiative by a group of emerging Townsville artists. Since those early years Umbrella has been transformed from an artist collective, offering practical studio-based facilities, to a funded and professionally managed members-based contemporary arts organisation. Umbrella runs an annual program of onsite and touring exhibitions, public programs, arts residencies, makerspace 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.
