QUAMPI, Quandamooka Art Museum and Performance Institute
The Quandamooka Art Museum and Performance Institute (QUAMPI) will be a cultural tourism experience for Queensland bringing together ancient Quandamooka artefacts with contemporary art, music, dance and performance.
The centre will include:
- an indoor exhibition space,
- conference and performing arts facilities,
- café and dining facilities, and
- a large outdoor space suitable for community and corporate events.
The Quandamooka People can practise and share their culture, heritage and art with visitors from all over the world. QUAMPI will become the home of the Quandamooka Festival and International First Nations artists will be invited to be part of exhibitions and events.
QUAMPI is a priority action in Gudjundabu Marumba: Tourism for a Glad Tomorrow, a five-year strategy for sustainable tourism on Quandamooka Country (PDF). The strategy was launched by the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) in December 2018.
The Queensland Government’s Department of Housing and Public Works (DHPW) is managing the design, procurement and construction of the centre on behalf of QYAC.
Cox Architecture has been appointed as the principal consultant.
