The Great & Grand Rumpus

Date: 11/12/2021 - 10/07/2022
Location: State Library QLD, Stanley Place, South Brisbane

Run wild at The Great and Grand Rumpus, a sculptural, digital and immersive installation at the State Library of Queensland.

This free exhibition is an opportunity for families to experience the limitless imagination of make-believe places. You’ll see crafted and sculpted mythical worlds and creatures based on ideas workshopped by children over the past 15-18 months.

There are also opportunities for you to get hands on. You can create your own mythical creation at The Great & Grand Rumpus.

The land of the rumpus is where anything is possible. It’s a wold of wonder, wackiness and whimsy. You’ll enjoy exploring large cardboard sculpture, some as high as 5 metres. Watch as they come to life by interactive digital projections.

More than 1,000 participants aged from six to 60 took part in the collaboration. The rumpus exhibition reminds us all of the importance of childlike wonder and how playing with a cardboard box can often be more fun that what was stored inside.
