Regional Queensland Touring
The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) is committed to extending the reach of the Collection, exhibitions and programs to all Queenslanders, regardless of geographical location through touring exhibitions and related services.
The Gallery recognises its responsibility to provide access to the Collection and to engage with a variety of Queensland communities. It also recognises the considerable challenges inherent in delivering these services, due to Queensland’s geographic decentralisation and the diversity of needs and capacities this represents.
QAGOMA touring services include a comprehensive Collection-based touring exhibition program; the staging of public programs and educational tours; the facilitation of kids ‘On Tour’ programs; the provision of professional development opportunities, programs of assistance to regional galleries; and best-practice models of museum operation.
