The Great and Grand Rumpus
The Great & Grand Rumpus
Welcome to The Great & Grand Rumpus. A collaboration of cardboard, creativity and community.
Incorporating the ideas of over 1000 participants from ages six to sixty, The Great & Grand Rumpus brings the nonsensical to life, the unreal to reality and LOUDNESS to the Library!
The project, completed over 15 months in libraries, schools and learning spaces across south-east Queensland, reminds us all of the importance of childlike wonder and how playing with the box is sometimes more fun than what was inside.
The Great & Grand Rumpus Wiki
The State Library's Wiki has been developed as a working knowledge-base, used to capture the development and delivery of workshops, engagements and facilities, alongside the decision making logic, as part of the Library’s commitment to sharing intellectual property which has been developed with public resources.
Part of the GGR project was to ensure all of the processes, workshop delivery and community engagement was documented and made available to the public, not only for those involved in the project but also other practitioners in Australia or around the world who might also want to deliver a similar exhibition program.
