Winter holiday fun for all!

It’s fantastic, it’s fun, it’s for everyone and it’s almost here! It’s the Great Grand Rumpus! This July school holidays young people, families and the community are invited to let your imagination run wild in a wonderful world of hidden stories, adventures and workshops at The Edge at the State Library of Queensland (SLQ).

On soon: from 30 June to 15 July from 10 am – 3 pm.

In previous workshops, children and families were invited to dream big and describe imaginary worlds that could become The Great and Grand Rumpus. Student and community design and fabrication teams are now racing against the clock creating an out of this world community designed play based space built to scale from kids’ stories and ideas of a magical world
