Our key venues for arts and culture offer year-round cultural experiences.
Sharing Logan’s stories.
This contemporary social history museum is a place to see, hear and experience the stories of the people who have made the City of Logan what it is today.
The displays acknowledge our city’s past, illuminate the present, and help us imagine our future.
It’s a place for our diverse communities to tell their own stories in their own words, through arts and cultural expression, providing opportunities to raise awareness and build upon respect.
First Nations space
A co-curated space by and for Logan’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Visitors can learn about First Nations language and culture, and hear digital stories from Logan’s Elders.
Tattoos: Story lines
Tattoos: Story lines, is an exhibition planned for 2024 that captures the journeys and stories of Logan residents through tattoo lines. Tattoos are no longer seen as a symbol of rebellion or conformity. Instead, tattoos are an art-form used to tell one’s personal history and stories. These special stories mark a moment in one’s life’s journey.
Living Museum of Logan is seeking people from Logan to share their tattoo stories through this exhibition. If you are interested email firstname.lastname@example.org and include an image of your tattoo(s) with a short text about them.
Kato Kakala in Logan
Kato Kakala project in Logan was supported by Logan City Council’s Community Development Fund and hosted by the Living Museum of Logan. Ivi projects in partnership with the Living Museum of Logan, facilitated workshops. The initiative of these workshops was to bring members of Logan’s diverse community into one space. Participants shared stories and painted their stories on the ngatu (barkcloth) which is still on its journey collecting more stories with national and international communities. The images and video developed during the residency are now on display at the Living Museum of Logan. Also included on this exhibition is the ngatu made with members of Waibene/ Thursday Island, Toowoomba, Gold Coast, Ipswich, Mooroobool, Manoora and Northern Beach Communities.
Big Voices: Children’s Art Matters
Drawing from the Dr Barbara Piscitelli AM Children’s Art Archive held by the State Library of Queensland, Big Voices: Children’s Art Matters gives us a chance to explore the worlds of children. The exhibition focuses on artworks by children from Woodridge State School, bringing home to the people of Logan, especially Woodridge, a sense of pride and inspiration. To complement the works from the Dr Barbara Piscitelli AM Children’s Art Archive, three-dimensional artforms made this year by current Woodridge State School students will be featured in glass cases alongside works from the Big Voices: Children’s Art Matters projects.
This exhibition is a collaboration with the State Library of Queensland.
Open 10am - 4pm Tuesday to Saturday
