Our Purpose

The purpose of the Salt Water Murris Quandamooka Art Gallery (SWMQ) is to promote and maintain the cultural capital of the clan groups - the Nunagal, Ngugi and Goenbal peoples of Quandamooka Country.

By operating a strong and sustainable Aboriginal contemporary visual art and craft centre, SWMQ manages the facilitation of the majority of cultural productions and professional development opportunities for Quandamooka artists.

Our goal is to strengthen and maintain our culture and keep it strong and alive, for future generations of artists and to also make culture available in an authentic way to those that seek a more deeper understanding.
