Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts

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.
