Magnificent Makers

Magnificent Makers

This event is now in the past.

Magnificent Makers is an intriguing exploration of innovation and invention in Queensland from the late 1800s to the present day. Discover the lives and works of a group of remarkable Queenslanders who thought outside the box to craft pioneering creations. Using the technology available to them at the time, they made significant developments in the areas of education, sport, leisure, clothing, photography, medicine, and scientific research. Their innovations range from the weird and wacky to the functional and philanthropic. This group of exceptional creators highlights the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurialism that is still thriving in Queensland today.

Magnificent Makers draws on SLQ’s rich collections to explore the lives of these relatively unknown Queensland innovators through photographs, drawings, blueprints and objects.
